Belmont World Film, which has presented the best in international films from around the globe for children and adults since 2001, celebrates the 10th anniversary of its Family Film Festival with “Magic and Movies,” five days of live action and animated films from the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Poland, the UK, Germany, Estonia/Latvia, Canada, China, the US, and elsewhere—many of them US or New England premieres— November 9-10 in Remis Auditorium at the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA), Boston, and November 16-18 at the Studio Cinema, Belmont (376 Trapelo Road).

Each weekend begins with “Magic Fridays,” magical programs of animated shorts, live action films, and performances. Opening night at the MFA on Nov. 9, at 7 PM features the New England premiere of The Magic Piano and The Chopin Shorts, a group of dazzling, wordless animated short films from Academy Award-winning Breakthru Films (Peter and the Wolf) connected by a soundtrack featuring Chopin’s magical Etudes performed by Chinese pianist Lang Lang. A live performance by Leonard Solomon and his “Bellowphone”—a one of a kind instrument made from found objects—follows. The film portion repeats on Sat., Nov. 17, at 1:30 PM at the Studio Cinema.

“Magic Friday” on Nov. 16 at the Studio Cinema features the New England premiere of the Dutch film The Magicians at 4:45 PM, about a boy obsessed by magic who discovers the difference between what’s real and what’s not and Make Believe by J. Clay Tweel, a documentary about the World Teen Magic Competition. Both films feature a live magic show by Bill Cook, a teen magician from Chicago featured in MakeBelieve. Moozy’s of Belmont will also provide complimentary ice cream treats at both screenings.
