NYICFF Kid Flicks One – Catch the best short films from around the world! (Ages 3+). 56 mins, in English, or with no dialogue.
The New York International Children’s Film Festival brings you a great opportunity to share the art of film with kids, with this program filled with fun and clever stories of growth and transformation.
If you’ve ever been the youngest of the group, you’ll sympathize with the little tadpole who always falls a tad behind in the charming KUAP. Catching up on penmanship is the name of the game if you want to graduate from pencils in the winning doc Pen Licence. Then little ones are in charge and grown-ups get to play when the hilarious Flipped reworks the script.
With films from 10 countries, these shorts are sure to delight and inspire.
NYICFF Kid Flicks Two – Catch the best short films from around the world! (Ages 8+). 72 mins, in English or with English subtitles.
These short films from the New York International Children’s Film Festival show that playfulness, big ideas, and feelings small and large are all just fine! With these great films for slightly older kids, you’ll have plenty of inspiration to continue the conversation with your kids long after the screening is done.
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.
For great films for kids ready to grow in experiences and ideas, NYICFF’s Kid Flicks Two is just the ticket!
