See/Saw Film Festival centers on exhibiting, disrupting and renegotiating constructions of children and young people who come from historically underserved and marginalized backgrounds. The films focus particular attention on children and youth whose experiences are under-considered or not considered at all. What does it means to grow up in the 21st century? How we can create more inclusive communities for children and youth?
The festival includes the following types of films: documentaries, fictional narratives, animations, feature-length, and shorts. The program reflects a cross-section of children and youth from around the United States and internationally. The majority of our films target adult audiences. However, we host several ancillary activities and a family movie night for younger film buffs. The festival takes place at the Lawrence Public Library in Lawrence, KS.
