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!
Older kids will love the award-winning shorts Heads Together (three friends spend a day walking in each other’s shoes, and legs, and torsos), Riceballs (a boy finds adventure in his lunchbox), Welcome to My Life (a teenage monster confronts a bully), and other witty and wise takes on friends, family, and fitting in.
Kidflix 1 screens Saturday, Sept. 23 and Sunday, Sept. 24 at noon. 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.
