Join us on the Red Carpet for the New York International Children’s Film Festival.
For over 20 years the NYICFF has premiered the best new films for ages 3-18. The Festival typically takes place over 4 weekends in early spring as families travelled to venues throughout NYC to view innovative and exciting films from around the world. This year, the Festival brings the premiere experience directly to your home for a limited time only.

Talk about how films, just like stories found in books, have similar elements – characters, settings and themes. Let them know that they will be seeing several different short films, each with its own characters and message. After you’ve watched the films, begin a conversation to get your children thinking about what they’ve seen:
- Which film was your favorite? What did you like about it?
- Which film was your least favorite? Why?
- Who was your favorite character? Why did you like them?
- Did any of these stories remind you of a book you’ve read or a place you’ve visited?
- Some of the films didn’t have dialogue, how could you tell what the characters were feeling?
