Grab some popcorn and get ready for a fun, artful film experience for kids and adults alike. With these hour-long screenings of the best of the New York International Children's Film Festival's short films, you can bring some artful, inspired storytelling and hilarity to your home screen. Two short film programs are available, Kid Flicks One recommended for ages 3+, and Kid Flicks Two for ages 8+. Have a great film experience with your kids, with plenty of ideas and themes to talk about long after the screening is done (and you'll have 48 hours to rewatch as much as you'd like!). We’ve worked with New York International Children's Film Festival (NYICFF) to make it possible for you to see both programs, available May 8-25 — and your virtual ticket purchases help support the Belcourt. For $6.99/each, you can purchase a ticket for NYICFF Kid Flicks One and/or Two. Once a ticket is purchased through Vimeo on Demand, you’ll have access for a 2-day/ 48 hour. You’ll need to create an account with Vimeo on Demand to pay for your ticket, but no monthly or annual subscription is needed. For some tips on using Vimeo on Demand, click here — or check out our FAQs here. The NYICFF will share a portion of your ticket payment with the Belcourt. Please note that this arrangement, in these unprecedented times, means we’re unable to offer member pricing. Thanks for your understanding and support. And if you’d like to consider an additional donation to the Belcourt, we’d be most grateful. You can do so here.
If you’ve ever been the youngest of the group, you’ll sympathize with the little tadpole who always falls a tad behind in the charming KUAP. Catching up on penmanship is the name of the game if you want to graduate from pencils in the winning doc Pen Licence. Then little ones are in charge and grown-ups get to play when the hilarious Flipped reworks the script. There are 12 short films from all over the world. Full details here.
