New York International Children's Film Festival 2014

The New York International Children's Film Festival is happening now! The festival boasts "four weeks of beautiful, groundbreaking, thought-provoking film from around the world for ages 3-18!"

Can't choose just one? Try one of the three Short Films options which cater to viewers aged 3-6, 5-10, and 8-14. Personally, I'm excited for the stop-motion workshop, screening of Coraline, and Q&A with Laika Studios responsible for Coraline and ParaNorman. I wish I had bought tickets fast enough for Brazilian artist AlĂȘ Abreu's Boy and the World. Not ready or close enough to get to New York but still want to view "the best international, classic or unusual movies"? Get your kids out of their TV-and-film-viewing comfort zone and try this DVD guide from past film festivals and other top picks from GKIDS (Guerrilla Kids International Distribution Syndicate).
