Tribeca Film Festival? Awesome.
New York International Children’s Film Festival? Yeah, not so much.
Note their mission statement:
NYICFF was founded in 1997 to promote intelligent, passionate, provocative cinematic works for ages 3-18 and to help define a more compelling film for kids. Since its launch, the event has grown to become the largest festival for children and teens in North America, with a paid audience of over 20,000 attending the most recent event. Since 2000, all screenings have sold out in advance.
This is pretty barfworthy. However, I guess taking your kid to a movie specifically made for and aimed at kids is better than dragging the munchkins along to cry through the midnight screening of There Will Be Blood.
