Kid Flicks feature two programs of acclaimed short films from last year’s NYICFF and will bring some inspired storytelling and hilarity to your home screen.

Kid Flicks One (56 min.), recommended for ages 3 & up, consists of 12 films (both animation and live action, all in English or without dialogue) from nine countries. Highlights include Belly Flop, Slurp, Preschool Poets: Poem about All Different Things (co-directed by Columbus’ Nancy Kangas), and KUAP, about a little tadpole who always falls a tad behind. The complete program can be found at Cleveland premiere.

Kid Flicks Two (72 min.), recommended for ages 8 & up, consists of eight films (animation, live action, and documentary, all in English or without dialogue) representing 10 countries. Highlights include the hilarious, Oscar short-listed French slapstick cartoon Hors Piste and Australia’s delightful A Field Guide to Being a 12-Year-Old Girl. Visit for the complete lineup.
