The New York International Children’s Film Festival has brought original and intelligent films from all over the world to children and their families since 1997. Over 100 short and feature films are presented, along with the full trappings of a well-run festival: gala premieres, filmmakers Q&As, awards, workshops, and retrospectives. Originality is a recurring theme at the festival, and organizers are not afraid to promote children’s films with mature sensibilities. They hit more often then they miss, and the results are good for children and their parents. Visit website for complete schedule, venues, and showtimes.
