February 27 - March 22, 2015
Final Deadline for Shorts Oct 6, 2014 - Final Deadline for Feature Films Nov 10, 2014
New York Int'l Children's Film Festival is North America's film festival for children and teens. Each year the Festival presents 100 animated, live action and experimental shorts and features from around the world plus retrospectives, filmmaker Q&As, workshops, audience voting, and an annual Awards Ceremony.
We are looking for creative, original, non-formulaic short and feature films that support our mission to create a more dynamic film culture for children and teens. We often program films that were not created with a young audience in mind, but are received passionately and enthusiastically by attendees ages 3-18 nonetheless. We are not shy about showing films with mature themes, subject matter, language or sensibilities.
Members of the Festival jury include Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis, Bill Plympton, Christine Vachon, James Schamus, Henry Selick and Gus van Sant, among others. The Festival is an Academy®-qualifying festival. SUBMIT
