Catch the best short films from around the world! Presented in partnership with New York International Children’s Film Festival (NYICFF).

3pm – Kid Flicks 1
(Ages 3+)
Bigger, brighter, bolder and brimming 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 License. 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 and so much more await you!

4pm – ¡Viva Kid Flicks!
(Ages 8+)
Celebrate Spanish-language and Latino-themed stories in shorts films from around the globe. Can a fabled stone offer another path for Matilde’s life on her Mexican rancho? And the choices we make at mealtime sometimes have a very big impact, especially for a seemingly picky eater with a lot more on his mind in the drama from Spain, Fish. The universal language of wizards bridges cultures from the UK to Cuba in the imaginative doc Spelliasmous. With films from 6 countries, you’ll experience moving stories and hear how Spanish stories from around the world have their own distinctive flair.
