Bring the kids to the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth this week, Aug. 16-18, for a series of free kid-oriented short films. The screenings will take place in the museum’s auditorium. Share the art of the screen with your children as they watch stories unfold and ideas form in delightful and innovative films. The screenings are anywhere from half an hour to two hours long, and the films grouped by age. You can see the entire film schedule here. Planned movies include Where the Wild Things Are (a 6-minute version), The Pigeon and the Hot Dog, and Defective Detective.

As a bonus, if you and your kids attend these films, you’ll receive free admission to the galleries before and after the screening.

The Modern is at 3200 Darnell Street.
