APRIL 17 TO 23 Since 1998, the Sprockets Toronto International Film Festival for Children has delighted youngsters and grown-ups alike by using movies to interpret art, attitudes and ways of life around the world. At this year’s event, sit spellbound at screenings of German director Christian Ditter’s The Crocodiles, the Spanish feature Carlitos and the Chance of a Lifetime by Jesus del Cerro, A Time to Love by Iran’s Ebrahim Forozeh, and dozens of other international films. Families can also dabble in film-related activities—including one that looks at special-effects makeup—offered throughout the festival. Appropriate for ages 3 and up. Tickets $6.60 to $10.61; call 416-968-3456 or click here for schedules and a list of venues.
