The Oscar-qualifying New York International Children’s Film Festival (NYICFF) announces its complete feature film slate for 2023.

Ringing in its 26th year, NYICFF is North America’s largest and most prestigious film festival for young audiences. After a COVID disruption followed by a hybrid festival last year, NYICFF returns to all in-person screenings and events. The festival begins Friday, March 3th and will run weekends through March 12th in New York City. Expanding to venues across Manhattan and Brooklyn, hosts include: SVA Theatre, Film Forum, DCTV’s Firehouse Cinema, Scandinavia House, and Alamo Drafthouse Brooklyn. The final weekend of March 18th & 19th will be at the Sag Harbor Cinema, a new addition this year.

For its 26th edition, the festival celebrates friendship, community and art as vital forces in our lives and crucial tools to push against the status quo and open new avenues of joy and possibility.

With seven U.S. and International Feature Premieres and titles hailing from France, Mexico, Japan, The Netherlands, and more, this year’s program continues NYICFF’s commitment to curating diverse stories told from a multitude of places and perspectives. Stylistically, the festival also offers a broad range of options from live action to the many compelling styles of animation, spotlighting hand-drawn artistry in particular.
