New York International Children's Film Festival recently announced its 2018 lineup. It will be celebrating its 21st anniversary, and will run over four weekends from Feb. 23-March 18. The films for children ages 3-18 include animated, live action, and documentary features from over a dozen countries.
Tickets are currently on sale for members and will go on sale for the general public on Jan. 24 at nyicff.org. The festival takes place at various locations around New York City: Alamo Drafthouse City Point in Brooklyn; Museum of the Moving Image in Queens; and Cinépolis Chelsea, IFC Center, Scandinavia House, and SVA Theatre in Manhattan.
One of the films highlighted this year is Hilda, "Luke Pearson’s episodic adaptation of his celebrated graphic novel series, in which plucky Hilda sets out on adventures evoking both Scandinavian folklore and Studio Ghibli," according to a recent NYICFF press release.
NYCIFF was founded in 1997 and is celebrating its 21st year. The children's film festival receives approximately 2,500 international submissions and shows over 120 short and feature-lenth films. The film fest will also include filmmaker Q-and-As, retrospective programs, parties, premieres, audience voting, and a closing night celebration.
Here are some of the films and events you and your children can look forward to at the 2018 New York International Film Festival:
