It is North America's largest film festival for children. The New York International Children's Film Festival (NYICFF) has already begun and is taking place now through March 27th. If you are in the area, you and your children/students might enjoy catching some of these films at one of the theaters around Manhattan. This three week event includes not only the showing of 100+ films from around the world, but also retrospectives, filmmaker Q&As, production workshops, receptions, audience voting, and the NYICFF Awards Ceremony.
Tickets are on sale now at the NYICFF website, http://www.gkids.com/.
Possibly one of the most exciting things may be the SPECIAL EVENT: NYICFF Awards, Best of Fest, and Closing Night Party which takes place this coming Sunday, March 20th. And the ticket prices are absurdly reasonable: only $15. (But tickets are going FAST!)
Some of this year's films are:
:: Aurelie Laflamme's Diary (Canada)
:: A Cat in Paris (France)
:: Chandani: The Daughter of the Elephant Whisperer (Sri Lanka)You can also take a look through their on-line shop, where you can rent or buy DVDs of some of the more popular films shown at the festival over the years, like these...
:: Under the Same Moon
:: White Mane
:: The Secret of Moonacre
:: Viva Cuba!
