They really didn’t have stuff this cool when I was a kid.
Just around the corner, it’s the TIFF Kids International Film Festival! Engaging, educational and entertaining, TIFF Kids offers children and youth the opportunity to learn about cultural perspectives from around the world through the power of the moving image.
Returning to Toronto for its 16th year (April 9th – 21st), the festival celebrates the best in child and youth cinema with special programming and activities for children aged 3 to 13. In addition to a compelling selection of features and shorts showcasing the best of Canadian and international cinema, the Festival includes an exciting slate of special guests, hands-on family activities and showcases for young filmmakers.
GapKids is a proud sponsor of TIFF Kids this year, and if you live in the Greater Toronto Area, this one’s for you:
Enter the GapKids Red Carpet Contest, where you’ll have the chance to win 1 of 3 Grand Prizes: 4 tickets to the exclusive opening night of TIFF Kids, and – to get your young ones ready for the red carpet – super cool and cute clothing from GapKids, valued at up to $100 per child!
The contest closes on April 2nd, so there’s lots of time to enter and share the promotion with your friends and family. And if you’re on Twitter, don’t forget to tweet @GapCA with the #GapKidsTIFFKids hashtag to let them know that you’ve entered. Good luck everybody!
In the spirit of this promotion, I put together my own Red Carpet looks for kiddos ages 3-13, using my favourite pieces from GapKids. Love what you see? Click here to shop at GapKids.
