Many would say the film industry is no place for children. This two-week film festival, curated for kids and teens ages 3-18, proves otherwise. The New York International Children's Film Festival and the American Cinematheque have teamed up to bring the largest children's festival in North America to the Aero Theatre this spring. Watch animated and live-action shorts and films from around the world—many screened for the first time on the West Coast—including A Letter to Momo from Japan, A Monster in Paris in 3-D from Paris and Cinderella Moon, a unique take on the popular fairytale, from China. For the adults who are kids at heart, don’t miss the director talks and presentations by industry professionals aptly named "Show and Tell." Be sure to brush up on the films by reading the movie reviews, written by kid critics who were selected specifically to critique the children's film fest.
