NY International Children's Film Festival

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

Taking your children to the movies doesn't HAVE to mean suffering through a big, colorful, loud, animated film, or one with lots of superheros, car chases, and explosions. The New York International Children's Film Festival is back, starting this weekend, with more provocative, sophisticated fare, a mix of live action films and animated ones that have been selected to appeal to a wide range of kids, from tots to teens. WNYC spoke with festival co-founder Eric Beckman, who says cinephiles can get their start at any age.
