SHORT FILMS ONE
SAT—March 14—10:45 AM
70 min. Ages 5-10
On your mark, get set, jump into an Olympic-size dose of inventiveness! A rather wild menagerie of animals competes for the gold in the series Athleticus; it’s a mad dash to wrap the season in The Last Day of Autumn; and the sky’s the limit for one boy’s journey through generations in the lofty and lovely The Kite.
SAT—March 14—1 PM
66 min. Ages 5+
North American Premiere
Whether you’re already mad for Moomins or you’ve yet to meet these hilarious and cuddly creatures, you can catch their newest capers as NYICFF once again offers an exclusive look at the latest goings-on in Moominvalley. Tove Jansson’s beloved books come to glorious life with a new take and season of their fairy-world tales and some of the biggest British stars voicing our favorite Moominfamily. (Directed by Steve Box; Finland/UK, 2019)
SHORT FILMS THREE
SAT—March 14—2:45 PM
75 min. Ages 12+
You’ve outgrown the kiddie pool, so take a dive into these often offbeat, at times hilarious, always thought-provoking shorts. Follow the stories of an insomniac bear and monkey on a mission (did we mention the mini Yeti?) in Nuit Cherie, and the Italian-born Senegalese teen questioning her identity in The School Trip.
New York International Children’s Film Festival is dedicated to inspiring, entertaining and educating through innovative film programs that cultivate an appreciation for the arts, stimulate critical thought and promote media literacy.
Each year, the Festival invites New York families to travel the globe, discover new ideas and gain a deeper understanding of the world they live in — all from the comfort of their theater seats.
