Delightful animated and live action shorts sure to please kids three and up. Curated from the New York International Children’s Film Festival.
Two young girls find primate pals in Me...Jane and Zoo Story. Fantastical journeys provide new perspectives in One, Two, Tree, An Object at Rest, and The Girl Who Spoke Cat. Tiny creatures are both welcome and unwelcome additions to someone’s home in Perfect Houseguest and The Visitors. Young Fidel reminisces about his family new and old on his Mother’s wedding day in Memories of the Sea. Wild characters plus delicious food equal a perfect recipe in both Octopus and Tiny Tunes: Food. A simple lesson proves to be essential in Looks while an important one is ignored in That is Not a Good Idea.
