What we want:
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 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.

-All Access Pass to the #1 Children's Film Festival in the Country

Established in 1997, NYICFF is North America's largest festival of film for children and teens, with attendance of 25,000 and a marketing reach of over 2 million. The cornerstone of our work is the annual film festival which takes place in March at theaters around New York City. The festival premieres 100 exceptional new films from around the world, plus filmmaker Q&As, receptions, panels, workshops, retrospectives, audience voting and the NYICFF Awards Ceremony.
