FILM FESTIVAL SUMMER 2018 INTERNSHIPS AVAILABLE

New York International Children’s Film Festival is the largest children’s film festival in North America, programming thoughtful, provocative, and intelligent films for young people ages 3-18 in a month-long event each year.


During four weekends in the months of February and March, the Festival invites over 25,000 parents, children, and filmmakers to experience the best new films from around the world at venues throughout NYC. Each year, NYICFF scours the globe to present a highly selective slate of the best animated, live action, documentary and experimental films, narrowed down from over 2,500 international submissions.


In addition, New York International Children’s Film Festival offers year-round engagement, including school field trips, premieres and sneak preview screenings, a touring program reaching cities nationwide, and more. As a small non-profit organization, the Festival relies heavily on the support of interns to help in the planning and execution of all of its programs.
