NYICFF Kid Flicks One (2019)

Touring Program

Recommended ages: 3-7
Program runtime: 56 min.

Bigger, brighter, bolder—change is in the air in NYICFF Kid Flicks 1, brimming with fun and clever stories of growth and transformation.

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.

These shorts and so much more await you!
