The New York International Children’s Film Festival is North America’s largest festival of film for children and teens, and stands at the forefront of a movement to define a new, more provocative and compelling film for kids. Each year the festival presents a carefully curated collection of the best new animation, live action and experimental film from around the world in an exhilarating festival atmosphere with all the immediacy and excitement of a Cannes or Sundance.
A teenage monster confronts a bully in Welcome to My Life (USA), a Japanese-Australian boy finds adventure in his lunchbox in Riceballs (Australia), and a competitive swimmer must prove that big talent can come in small packages in Little Mouse (Hungary). Kid Flix 2 features live action and animated shorts for ages 8 and up from the 2017 New York International Children’s Film Festival that offer witty and wise takes on friends, family, and fitting in.
