SUBMIT TO THE FESTIVAL - FEB 27 THROUGH MAR 22, 2015
Submissions are now open for the 2015 Festival! We are looking for creative, original, non-formulaic short and feature films that will support our mission to create a more dynamic film culture for kids. We often program films that are not created with a young audience in mind, but are received passionately and enthusiastically by our attendees nonetheless.
IN MEMORY OF ANDREA KLEIN
We are deeply saddened by the loss of Andrea Klein, a wonderful person and longtime champion of the Festival. We are humbled by her family's request to accept donation's in Andrea's name. Donations made will go directly toward programs that expose all of New York City's youth to a diverse and dynamic film culture.
