Friday the New York International Children’s Film Festival starts and the world is better for it.
I’m in heaven at the thought of spending several weekends in the dark seeing great films with great people. In all seriousness the people running NYICFF are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. They love to talk and discuss the films and they everyone feel welcome. The audience too are marvelous full of adults and kids who love to share their enthusiasm for the films. There is nothing like talking to kids who explain to you why the film they just saw was the BEST.
The thing all of you adults need to realize is that the films and the screenings are for you too. Yea it’s a festival that says it’s a children’s films fest but it’s for everyone of any age regardless. Everyone is welcome as long as they like great films.
I’ll be at the festival the entire first weekend. I’ve got a lot of films to go through so expect lots of coverage. I’m still working out the second weekend and trying to see if I can get out to Sag Harbor for the third weekend.
There are just too many films to see and not enough time.
As this posts I’ve seen few of the shorts and five of the features. I’ll be posting the new reviews and reposting the old reviews beginning in a day or so.
I’ve enjoyed everything that I’ve seen so far so my advice is just go see what ever tickles your fancy. I say this because most of the coverage of the fest is going to be after the fact since I will be going to the festival so I can’t do a big recommended list.
Go buy tickets. There is great stuff there.
Tickets can be had here
And if you see me and my monster bag come say hi
