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. The NYICFF jury includes such film icons as Susan Sarandon, Gus Van Sant, Matthew Modine, James Schamus, Michel Ocelot, Uma Thurman, Evan Shapiro, Christine Vachon and John Turturro.
Now these exciting, culturally enriching NYICFF films are available to audiences nationwide in an all-digital presentation of short film compilations and award-winning feature films. Perfect for theaters, festivals, museums, and arts centers, the Best of NYICFF Tour allows venues to either supplement their regular kids' programming with exciting new alternative content, or create their own miniature children's film festival over the course of one or two action-packed weekends!
