I cannot stress how amazing this festival is for bringing so many never before seen films to the NY area. I have seen so many wonderful films at the festival over the years. This year’s Festival will take place March 7-30 at venues throughout Manhattan. Highlights include US and North American feature film premieres of Amazonia (France), Boy in the World (Brazil), Aunt Hilda! (France), Foosball (Argentina), Patema Inverted (Japan) and others, six Oscar-qualifying short film programs, a live sing-a-long event featuring 2011’s The Muppets and hosted by Oscar-winning producer and composer Bret McKenzie, and LAIKA: Behind the Magic, a special presentation featuring never-before-seen footage of the studio’s upcoming feature, The Boxtrolls.
Each year the festival presents 100 animated, live action and experimental shorts and features from around the world plus gala premieres, retrospectives, filmmaker Q&As, workshops, audience voting, and the NYICFF Awards Ceremony.
