New York Int’l Children’s Film Festival Announces Complete 2014 Slate

The critically acclaimed New York Int’l Children’s Film Festival (NYICFF) has announced its full lineup for the 2014 edition. The NYICFF is scheduled to run March 7-30 at five Manhattan locations, including the DGA Theater, IFC Center, Scholastic Theater, SVA Theatre and Village East Cinema. The festival will feature 100 new animated and live action shorts and features, opening and closing night parties, studio showcases, filmmaker Q&As, audience voting and the NYICFF Awards Ceremony.

Tickets for the NYICFF are now available on the In Theaters section of Gkids’ website. The festival’s full schedule is also available on GKids’ official website’s home page.

The festival, which is now in its 17th year, includes new films for children ages 3-18. Highlights from the festival include the US and North American feature film premiers of such movies as France’s ‘Amazonia’ and ‘Aunt Hilda!,’ Brazil’s ‘Boy in the World,’ Argentina’s ‘Foosball’ and Japan’s ‘Patema Inverted.’ There will also be special preview screenings of ‘Rio 2’ and ‘Muppets Most Wanted.’

“The 2014 Festival brings together an incredible mix of the best new film from six continents–from the newest crop of international features, special preview screenings, and even a few Oscar nominees, to our six wonderfully eclectic short film programs, where many of the Festival’s true treasures lie,” said Eric Beckman, the found and creative director of NYICFF. “Families and film-lovers of all ages can feast on four weekends of non-stop movies. It is an eye-opening, horizon-expanding experience – and just a whole lot of fun.”
