The New York International Children’s Film Festival (NYICFF) starts Friday 2/24


Now in its 20th year, the New York International Children’s Film Festival is one of NYC’s more reliable film fests. They screen some of the best films aimed at children, teens, and families, with some impeccable curation and selections for their annual slate.

This year’s festival runs from February 24th to March 19th. The 2017 slate includes the Oscar-nominated French film My Life as a Zucchini, the Japanese anima mega-hit Your Name (one of our most anticipated films of the year), the Roald Dahl adaptation Revolting Rhymes, and the fascinating Persian poetry film Window Horses.

I’ll be seeing a few of the films opening weekend, and you can expect to see some reviews on Flixist next week.
