Meet Ranny Levy, Discusses "How to Turn Your Kids/Grandkids Media Experience Around" 4/4
A former educator, Levy created an award-winning PBS, produced an ACE-nominated television show and managed an independent film production and distribution company in the mid 80s. Wharton Club members & guests are invited!
The invasive impact of violent and biased media on children became the impetus, in 1991, for Levy to create KIDS FIRST! / Coalition for Quality Children's Media, dedicated to promoting and nurturing quality children's media as a vehicle for social change. A former educator, Levy created an award-winning PBS, produced an ACE-nominated television show and managed an independent film production and distribution company in the mid 80s.
In 1991, Levy co-founded the Coalition for Quality Children's Media and its popular KIDS FIRST! program. Levy developed the KIDS FIRST! Film Critics initiative, a program that engages young people (ages 9 to 22) as entertainment reporters. These kids attend press screenings, red carpets, press junkets, site visits and similar. They review all the latest films rated PG-13 younger and interview talent on and off the red carpet. Their reviews are both on camera and written.
KIDS FIRST! has a robust YouTube Channel with more than 4000 video-taped film reviews and talent interviews and more than 100,000 visitors weekly. KIDS FIRST! Film Critics reviews reach more than 7 million people each month through the KIDS FIRST! website, social media, YouTube Channel and radio show as well as in blogs on Huffington Post, GRAND Magazine, Working Mother Magazine, Kidzworld.com, Kidsville News and 50 additional online and print publications. KIDS FIRST! also produces a weekly radio show and a traveling children’s film festival.
