Gaffney, Maureen, Ed.
Young Viewers/Film Review Supplement, v1 n1 Fall 1979
Designed for media specialists and educators, this issue reviews 16 short films for children under the age of 14. Films included in the review range from 2 to 29 minutes in length and include song, puppet, verbal, nonverbal, and live-action animation. Topics cover fantasy and fairy tales, handicapped children, advertising techniques, inner city life, and ecology and nature. Produced throughout the 1970s, the films were tested at least three times with different groups of children and evaluated in terms of the children's responses. Each review provides a synopsis of the film, children's reactions to the film, and recommendations concerning ages and programs most suitable for the showing of these films. (LH)
