About the Event:

The Columbus International Film & Animation Festival isn’t just for adults. Saturday Morning Cartoons from Around the World — a long-running festival tradition — features family-friendly cartoons. This year, children of all ages can hunt UFOs, sell stars, explore a Singaporean bazaar, and more in this selection of colorful animation. Plus, join us for fun foods in the Canzani Center lobby before and after the cartoons. Access to Saturday Morning Cartoons from Around the World is included in the festival pass. Tickets for adults cost $3 each. Admission for children under 12 is free. (P.S. We know that mornings end at noon, but we also know that, for college students, mornings start later.)
