Designed for media specialists and educators, this issue includes five articles exploring the contributions of children's films to museum programs. Following a brief editorial encouraging the use of films in museums, the first article outlines a picture storybook model for evaluating children's films. Several storybook models are identified, and a sample evaluation is offered. The second article describes a study in which four groups of Hispanic children aged 3 to 12 were surveyed to evaluate quality, interest level, and problems of films targeted for this ethnic group. The third article outlines the development of a "discovery tour" program which uses films and activities to stimulate children's interest in museum art collections. The fourth article reviews a 3-day workshop on programming children's films in museums. A list of films is included. The final article describes a family film festival sponsored by a 1979 conference of the Media Center for Children. Films included in the 4 hour screening of animations, documentaries, and extraordinary stories are reviewed. (LP)
