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.

JACK & THE CUCKOO CLOCK HEART - SEPT 21, 11:00am @ VILLAGE EAST
DVDs FOR THE FIRST 30 FAMILIES! In this 2014 Festival favorite, Jack is born on a day so cold that his heart freezes. In its place he is given a mechanical wind-up heart, which comes with some very peculiar rules - the gravest of which is that he is forbidden from falling in love. Yet when a chance encounter with an equally unusual girl sends him on a journey from his native Edinburgh to Andalusia, Jack decides to challenge the rules that govern his very existence.
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.
KIDS MAKE MOVIES! Classes take place during public school breaks and are offered in a variety of animation and live action filmmaking techniques for ages 6 to 16. Students will conceive, storyboard, write, shoot, draw, model, create sets, and perform on camera to create a completed short film. Previous workshops have included Create-a-Cartoon, Multimedia Storytelling, Moviemaking Master Class, Rotoscope Animation, Claymation and more!
