Kids will go buggy for this inspiring winged insect. Ladybug Jane is a multi-media eco-friendly character who is passionate about her environment and loves to teach kids about making responsible choices in their everyday lives.

Ladybug Jane’s motto is, “It all starts with … One Choice, One Step, One Change.”

Meet Ladybug Jane at this year’s third annual 2010 Bel-Air Film Festival (BAFF) as she makes her debut onscreen, and in person walking the green carpet in the garden. Ladybug Jane is a multi-media eco-friendly character who is passionate about her environment and loves to teach kids about making responsible choices in their everyday lives.

Kids will go buggy for this inspiring winged insect. Join Jane Graves, creator of Ladybug Jane, as she and Ladybug Jane host BAFF’s first Eco Family Day on Sunday October 17, 2010 at UCLA’s James Bridges Theatre. The excitement begins at 10:00am when the kids become the stars as they walk the green carpet and have their picture taken with Ladybug Jane. The Ladybug Jane animated short film - “Red Lips Inspires Ladybug Tips” (directed by Rusty Mills “Pinky and the Brain”) will screen promptly at 11:30am (along with two other animated short films). Each child will receive a special gift and photo (online accessible) of themselves with this charismatic ladybug.

Ladybug Jane is the brainchild of Jane Graves – model, actress and research scientist who is on a mission to educate children and their parents through the art of animation, games and creative fun. The idea is to empower families through engaging conscious media so they can make healthy choices in their lives, while respecting the planet – to truly make a difference. Ladybug Jane’s motto is, “It all starts with … One Choice, One Step, One Change.”

When Jane’s mother was diagnosed with cancer, Jane decided she wanted to learn more about how environmental toxins contribute to the disease. Ladybug Jane was inspired by her findings, and her desire to share that information with a younger audience and teach them how to be safe and respect their planet. Jane states, “I want kids to know the importance of being conscious about what they put in, on and around their bodies and about connecting to nature, it’s brilliance, magic and wisdom, and what a big role it all plays in a healthy future.”

This FREE Eco Family Day featuring Ladybug Jane will be filled with engaging and inspiring activities for the whole family – kids yoga, a young people (and mommy) spa area, worm composting and eco-friendly face painting, along with a few other surprise garden creatures and healthy tasty treats.

“Red Lips Inspires Ladybug Tips” offers the viewer an adventure that begins with Ladybug Jane’s best friend Andy the aphid finding a pair of magical glasses that opens their eyes to a whole new reality as they discover the human world for the very first time.

The Bel-Air Film Festival is an independent international film festival dedicated to inspiring filmmakers and providing them with the resources needed to further their knowledge. Most of the films screened are first time premieres in the categories of foreign film, documentaries, animation, short films, student film and comedy. The festival is recognized for celebrating cinema in one of Southern California’s most prestigious and storied communities. The Festival attracts thousands of moviegoers each year at their weeklong festival.
