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 diverse community must put aside their differences to enjoy a tasty meal in Stone Soup (France/Belgium), a hungry creature devises a way to get his fill in Tiger (Germany), and a young croc enjoys a tasty treat in Crocodile (Germany). With visually innovative animation and many Audience Award winners from New York International Children’s Film Festival 2017, Kid Flix 1 is truly delicious for ages 3-7.
