Kids In The Spotlight’s First Annual Red-Carpet Fundraiser Showcases and Awards 10-Minute Films Created by, Written by, Cast by and Starring Kids!

The festival held on saturday October 30, 2010 was a wonderful success. The event helped to raise money for feature films by kids, while highlighting and rewarding the talents of the kids who participated. It was a star studded event, Host Harry J. Lennix and Sherri Shepherd , which presented eight kid created films on various subjects. (check out pictures from that night) The kids were then awarded Jordan Awards for categories from Best Actress to Best Film.
