The Cinema of Childhood is a touring film season which introduces British audiences to 17 brilliant movies about children from all around the world, which have rarely or never before been screened in the UK. The season is curated by the filmmaker Mark Cousins, and inspired by his feature documentary A Story of Children and Film, the first film about children in global cinema. Cinema of Childhood launches in April 2014 at Filmhouse in Edinburgh, BFI Southbank and other key venues. The films will be available until March 2015 in selected UK cinemas and online via Filmhouse Player and BFI Player. A Story of Children and Film is released in UK theatres and online by Dogwoof from April 4.
