FESTIVAL DATE: Saturday, December 4, 2021 @ 4pm
Jengo’s Playhouse / 815 Princess Street

The Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Magic Cheese Film Festival presents new works in youth cinema that are under 10 minutes in length and do not contain any reference to business of any kind. We prefer films that do not contain mustard or milk. The festival showcases comedy, animation, scary movies, action movies but nothing boring like history or math. The festival is produced by youth from Wilmington, North Carolina who are taking classes at the DREAMS Center for Arts Education.
