NYICFF National

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

Our dedication to presenting the best new films from around the world to audiences of all ages extends well beyond the boundaries of NYC.

Kids and families everywhere deserve high quality film experiences. Our programs invite families and classrooms to be a part of a vibrant film community and experience the power of film while providing an opportunity to view the world from new perspectives. We partner with over 65 cultural institutions, performing arts centers, festivals, and indie cinemas to bring the power of film to young people across the country.
