Thank you to all who helped kick off our 20th Festival season at our annual NY Int’l [NOT FOR KIDS] Film Festival Benefit + Auction!
At an evening of eats, drinks, bidding, and inappropriate* short films, guests supported the Festival and our Film-Ed initiative, which provides free and discounted opportunities for students and families to participate in the full range of Festival activities and services.
*a selection of films that were submitted to the Festival that may not be appropriate for your kids, but that we just couldn’t keep to ourselves.
