Logo, white text in black circle: NYICFFTake your kids on a trip around the world on Sunday, November 10 at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. No passport required, no wall at the border. A wonderful collection of short films from around the world for the young and the young-at-heart. This screening will consist of two programs separated by a 15-minute intermission. The first set of films is aimed at children ages 3-7 (starts at 2pm, 60 minutes) and the second is aimed at ages 8-80 (starts at 3:15, 72 minutes). One ticket admits you into both programs, but you can feel free to attend only one half if you prefer.

This year’s Festival includes short films from France, Germany, Japan, Sweden, Australia, Russia, South Africa, Guatemala, Colombia, Lithuania, and South Korea.

Doors will open at 1:30pm for this general admission event.

“Devoted to the kind of fare that may be found at the Academy Awards but not at the local multiplex.
It gives young audiences more to digest than popcorn.”
– New York Times

*Also screening on November 10th and included in your purchase of a Ryder All-Day Pass:*

Honeyland (5pm) The story of a Macedonian beekeeper, an amazing glimpse into a forgotten world. Honeyland is “as astonishing — as sublime and strange and full of human and natural beauty — as anything I’ve ever seen in a movie. It reminded me of The Lorax, Dr. Seuss’s great, prescient tale of ecological folly. – A. O. Scott, The New York Times. (90 min.)

Los Reyes (The Kings) (7:15pm)  takes place at the oldest skate park in Santiago, Chile, and was intended to feature the teenagers who congregate there regularly. But over the course of roughly two years, the filmmakers discovered that while the skaters came and went, there were two characters that always seemed to be hanging about: a pair of stray dogs.
