The Butler and the Ball, an urban fairy tale about a lonely boy who enters a contest to become the new butler of a grieving, reclusive singer, was directed by eight-year-old Andrew Chan-Possemato, who wrote and produced it with Albert.
The Boston International Kids Film Festival is presented by the nonprofit 501(c)3 organization Filmmakers Collaborative, in partnership with GBH, a member station of National Public Radio and affiliate of Public Radio International. By screening student-made films from around the world while at the same time offering these young filmmakers a look at professionally-made films created just for them, Boston International Kids Film Festival enables the next generation of filmmakers to realize the power and potential of media.
