Join us for a free summer family matinee movie screening. Basilica has partnered again with New York International Children’s Film Festival to show their best-of-the-fest Kid Flicks series of shorts. The screening series will include free popcorn for all attendees and will be hosted in Basilica’s 150-seat, air-conditioned North Hall cinema.

NYICFF Kid Flicks 2 bridges the gap between little and big for young audiences growing in experiences and ideas.

Take a wild ride and harness the (cat) power of the cosmos with the quirky film ​Catmos​. If you’re curious about more earthly matters, take a page out of a ​Field Guide to Being a 12-Year-Old Girl​. And whether their tastes lean umami or sweet, the duo in ​Mogu & Perol ​just might convince you there is simply nothing more delish than a warm friendship.

With these films and more, NYICFF Kid Flicks 2 shows you’re never too old to learn a few new tricks!

This screening will be part of a regular series of free Sunday afternoon matinee movie screenings, which will also include Kid Flicks 1 (ages 3-7) on Sunday, July 28, and Viva Kid Flicks (ages 8+, Spanish-language and Latino-themed) on Sunday, August 18.
