The KIDS FIRST! Film Critics are a national group of youth reporters, age 8 to 18, who review new films rated PG-13 and younger, interview talent and share their views on entertainment geared for kids. These kids come from all across the country, from New York City to Los Angeles, Denver to Miami and they stand side by side with seasoned entertainment reporters on red carpets at premieres, interviewing talent and sharing their opinions of media directed at a youth audience. Their blog on Huffington Post gives them a voice and allows them to tell you their honest opinion about the media they review.
Their reviews are seen, read or listened to by more than 6 million people every month on Huffington Post, Kidzworld.com, Workingmother.com, GrandMagazine.com and 50 additional local and regional publications.
