Are your kids aspiring filmmakers? Take them to the 13th Los Angeles International Children's Film Festival on Sunday! The film fest presents nearly 50 films from around the world created for different age groups and features animation, live action, and documentary films. Enjoy a Q&A after each screening to get an inside look at the process.

While you’re here, explore the great inventiveness of Mexican artists in Painted in Mexico, 1700–1790: Pinxit Mexici, an exhibition The Los Angeles Times calls “remarkable and important.” Don’t miss the large-scale paintings once featured in churches, staircases, and schools around Mexico and Europe.

Also on view, Found in Translation: Design in California and Mexico, 1915–1985 features furniture, ceramics, and other objects from California and Mexico in the past century. Trace the design dialogue between the two locales and see how each place inspired artists and artisans.

Get some holiday shopping in by visiting the LACMA Store and Art Catalogues. Pick up some tributo cups made in Mexico, a Kandinsky poster, or a gift membership for that someone special.
