This very special event includes two separate programs of Kidflix (films from the New York International Children’s Film Festival), select shorts made by JBFC students, and an opportunity for audiences to vote for their favorite!
These delightfully creative animated films from around the world include appealing and funny stories and characters that young audiences will love—including young girls who find primate pals, tiny creatures who are both welcome and unwelcome additions to someone’s home, a well-fed crocodile, and much more.
Kidflix 2 screens Saturday, Sept. 23 and Sunday, Sept. 24 at 1:45. More information and tickets are available here.

It is a day to recognize the year-round contributions of film and filmmakers, patrons, projectionists, and staff, and the brick and mortar theaters that are passionately dedicated to providing access to the best cinematic experience.
