25th Anniversary Donation

Donate to give NYICFF another 25 years!

We never imagined back in 1997 that NYICFF could change the trajectory of so many lives: from the audience member who finally saw their community on screen to the filmmaker blown away by the depth of a young person’s question. We’re incredibly proud to be a part of the change happening—on screen, behind the camera, in classrooms, and in studios—and we cannot do it with your support. Here's to the next 25.

About New York International Childrens Film Festival

Established in 1997, NYICFF’s mission is rooted in the belief of film as a path for young people to understand themselves and others. All programs are designed to celebrate the beauty and power of film, spark the inherent capacity of children to connect with complex, nuanced art, and encourage the creation of intelligent films that represent and celebrate unique, diverse, and historically excluded voices.
