New York Int'l 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. Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis, Christine Vachon, James Schamus, Matthew Modine and Gus van Sant are on the NYICFF Jury. As an Academy®-qualifying Festival, winners of NYICFF's juried prizes are eligible for Oscar® consideration in the Animated and Live Action Short Film categories.
What we are looking for:
Each year the festival scours the globe to present a highly selective slate of the best animation, live action, documentary and experimental film from around the world. We are looking for creative, original, non-formulaic works that will help to define a new, more compelling film for kids. We are not shy about showing films with mature themes, subject matter, language or sensibilities, especially for our teen and pre-teen audiences.
Submissions for NYICFF 2014 are currently closed. Submissions for the 2015 festival will open in April/May.
