The NY International Children’s Film Festival opens in less than two weeks and continues through the middle of March. This year offers a fantastic program with films for preschoolers up through middle school. The films hail from around the world and include many in English but several for French, Icelandic, Dutch, German, Swedish, Japanese and Swahili speakers too. The subject matter ranges from silly to serious, animation to documentary — giving kids to a chance to see the world and explore issues from new perspectives.
The Short Films programs are always a highlight and this year includes a program focused on Dutch shorts – Friends and Neighbors: Netherlands as well as annual Girls’ POV and age-based collections. This year’s feature films include highly anticipated Japanese anime – Okko’s Inn and Penguin Highway; straight from Sundance, the breathtaking true story about a boy’s determination to help his Malawi village in Boy Who Harnessed the Wind; an animated adaptation of Moomins; the triumphant Icelandic soccer adventure, The Falcons; and Pachamama, a beautiful animated tale of two kids in the ancient Peruvian Andes whose adventure includes protecting their traditions from intruders.
