If you’ve ever been the youngest of the group, you’ll sympathize with the little tadpole who always falls a tad behind in the charming KUAP.

With films from 10 countries, these shorts are sure to delight and inspire.

With these great films for slightly older kids, you’ll have plenty of inspiration to continue the conversation with your kids long after the screening is done.
Take a wild ride and harness the (cat) power of the cosmos with the quirky film Catmos. If you're curious about more earthly matters, take a page out of a Field Guide to Being a 12-Year-Old Girl. And whether their tastes lean umami or sweet, the duo in Mogu & Perol just might convince you there is simply nothing more delish than a warm friendship.
For great films for kids ready to grow in experiences and ideas, NYICFF’s Kid Flicks Two is just the ticket!
