NYICFF National

Join us in the movement to create a more dynamic film culture for kids and teens.

Kids and families everywhere deserve high-quality film experiences, and our dedication to presenting the best new films from around the world to audiences of all ages extends well beyond the boundaries of NYC. We partner with over 100 cultural institutions, performing arts centers, festivals, and indie cinemas to bring the power of film to young people across the country.

Our programs invite families and classrooms to be a part of a vibrant film community, and provide an opportunity to view the world from new perspectives.
