Kids Film It Festival 

When: Fri., Nov. 10 2017
When 14-year-old Ryan Levine decided to start a film festival for kids, he chose to partner with the Michael J. Fox Foundation because his grandmother has Parkinson's disease. The resulting film festival has become a big hit; it comes to the Rock Hall at 7 tonight. While this is only its second year, the festival has received more than 100 submissions from around the country, from kids ages 8 to 18. This year's selections are grouped into three categories (animation, music and film), and have been submitted by three age groups. Winners in each category and age group will be announced tonight. Judges are Todd Lieberman, who produced the films Wonder and Stronger; Marc Buckland, an Emmy Award-winning producer and director; and Cleveland's own Ivan Schwarz, president of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission. Tickets can be purchased through the festival website, below, and 100 percent of proceeds go to the MJFF. And don't forget to check out the DeLorean on the plaza, a not-so-subtle nod to Michael J. Fox's ride in the timeless Back to the Future. (Niesel)
