New York International Children's Film Festival (NYICFF) is issuing a call for entries


New York International Children's Film Festival (NYICFF) is issuing a call for entries for the upcoming 2010 festival, to take place from February 26-March 14, for a sold-out-in-advance audience of over 20,000 children, teens, parents, filmmakers and media professionals and a marketing reach of 2 million in the New York area.  NYICFF seeks creative, original, non-formulaic works that will help to define a new, more compelling film for kids. 



NYICFF JURY:  Academy Award® winning actress Susan Sarandon, Award winning actor John

Turturro, Academy Award®  nominated director Gus Van Sant, Academy Award®  nominated filmmaker James Schamus, award-winning producer Christine Vachon, award-winning actor Matthew Modine, and New Yorker's Adam Gopnik


SUBMISSION DEADLINE:          November 2, 2009

FESTIVAL DATES:                       February 26-March 14, 2010

CATEGORIES INCLUDE:            Features, Shorts, Animation, Narrative, Documentary, Experimental










As North America's largest and most prestigious festival of film for people under 18, NYICFF presents a kaleidoscope of new animation, live action, experimental and documentary shorts and feature films from around the world. Revered by Variety as "more daring and subtle than the usual kids' fare" and recognized by Time Out New York as "redefining what kids' entertainment can be," NYICFF is not shy about showing films with mature themes, subject matter, language or sensibilities - especially for their teen and pre-teen audiences.


The Festival offers filmmaker Q&As, hands-on production workshops, red-carpet premieres, audience voting, and the NYICFF Awards Ceremony.  Programs are organized by age group, with screenings available for all ages from tots to teens. Winners are chosen by audience ballot and NYICFF also presents a Special Jury Award, selected by a celebrity panel.


Since its inception in 1997, NYICFF has premiered groundbreaking new works by directors such as Hayao Miyazaki, Danny Boyle, Katsuhiro Otomo and Michael Ocelot. In recognition of its efforts, NYICFF has been twice honored by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, while NY State Council for the Arts named NYICFF "a model for youth programming in New York State."


"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."
--NY Citisearch
"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."
--Daily News
"Could NYICFF be the birth place of indie film for kids?"
--Time Out New York
