The Chicago International Children's Film Festival celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, presenting weekday shows for school field trips, weekend shows for families, and kids' workshops on a variety of cinematic topics. This year's workshops include sessions on optical effects (Sat 10/26, 10 AM, Instituto Cervantes), computer animation (Sat 10/26, noon, Illinois Institute of Art), motion-capture technology (Sat 10/26, 1 PM, Facets Multimedia), stop-motion animation (Sat 11/2, 11 AM, Facets Multimedia), live improvisation (Sat 11/2, 12:45 PM, Music Box), and gender constructs in film, for girls who don't yet understand why they're so pissed off (Sat 11/2, 1 PM, Facets Multimedia). Most weekend programs are at Music Box, 3733 N. Southport, or Facets Cinematheque, 1517 W. Fullerton; they tend to sell out, so consider this a valuable lesson in foresight that will serve you well in maturity.
