Lenfest Kids: November Programming + Get Creative

November 26, 2020

|Recurring Events (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until November 30, 2020

For our November “virtual” Lenfest Kids, we’ve chosen three movies connected to Thanksgiving.

Our classic is Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968), a mainstay of CBS’s Thanksgiving Day programming throughout the 1970s. Our animated film is Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009), whose protagonist matches wits against three horrid poultry farmers Boggis, Bunce, and Bean. And our live-action film is the John Hughes’ comedy Planes,Trains, and Automobiles (1987), in which the comic odd couple, Steve Martin and John Candy, battle hilariously to get home in time for the holiday.

See movies and details.

Get Creative Project

Stop-Motion Animation

In addition to our programming, we encourage Lenfest Kids participants to get inspired by the films we recommend by making their own film projects!

For this month, the Get Creative project is a Stop-Motion Animation film like Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. (Behind the scenes of Fantastic Mr. Fox.) There are several phone apps available that will make the Stop Motion process easier for you. There are several phone apps available that will make the Stop-Motion process easier for you.
