NYICFF has a marketing reach of 2 million in the New York area, and a sold-out-in-advance audience of over 20,000 children, teens, parents, filmmakers and media professionals.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
NYICFF seeks 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.
Features, Shorts, Animation, Narrative, Documentary, Experimental, 35mm, and Video.
Address: 295 Greenwich Street #426, New York, NY 10007
"Devoted to the kind of fare that may be found at the Academy Awards but not
at the local multiplex."
--New York Times
"Enough premieres, parties, celebs and receptions to become a virtual kiddie Cannes."
"Kid films that have not been cooked in Hollywood's cauldron are starting to burst into the mainstream thanks in part to the New York International Children's Film Festival."
Note: If you have already submitted this year, we thank you!
Final decisions will be made in December.
