"This festival is about redefining what kids' entertainment can be." - Time Out New York
A teenage monster confronts a bully in Welcome to My Life (USA), a Japanese-Australian boy finds adventure in his lunchbox in Riceballs (Australia), and a competitive swimmer must prove that big talent can come in small packages in Little Mouse (Hungary). Kid Flix 2 features live action and animated shorts for ages 8 and up from the 2017 New York International Children’s Film Festival that offer witty and wise takes on friends, family, and fitting in.
This Sensory Friendly screening is free and open to the public. A special opportunity for individuals living with autism and others to enjoy films in a safe and accepting environment. The Cinema auditorium will have lights turned slightly up and the sound turned slightly down. A quiet space and headphones will be made available.
