Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes services and offers




New York Int'l Children's Film Festival is North America's largest festival of film for children and teens and stands at the forefront of a movement to define a new, more provocative and compelling film culture for kids. Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis, Bill Plympton, Christine Vachon, James Schamus, Henry Selick and Gus van Sant are on the NYICFF Jury. As an Academy®-qualifying Festival, winners of NYICFF's juried prizes are eligible for Oscar® consideration in the Animated and Live Action Short Film categories.

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.
