Tickets for the popular the BAMkids Film Festival go on sale January 7; a BAM spokesperson has informed Scooter. The festival, which is celebrating 15 years of delivering cinematographic excellence to an often under-appreciated demographic, will showcase some 76 films from 24 countries, several of which will be world premieres. The 2013 festival will take place at BAM Rose Cinemas in Fort Greene, Brooklyn over the weekend of February 2 and 3 and targets an audience ages 2-10 and their families.
