On May 4, “Itsy Bitsy Shorts” showcases a selection of short films geared for little film-goers (ages 2-5) that will screen at the Japanese American National Museum. Kids will also explore movie magic through interactive activities, including the Echo Park Film Center’s Filmmobile, a school bus transformed into a mobile media classroom. Suggested for ages 2-5 years old. Also on the 4th is “From Vision to Reel: Finding Home.” These film, screening at the Downtown Independent Cinema (251 S.

Coinciding with the JACCC’s Fiesta Matsuri (which combines Japanese & Mexican Children’s Day celebrations), this program shows a set of inspiring family-friendly films as well as offering workshops and activities designed for children of all ages.
