Museum of the Moving Image - Bartos Screening Room

Catch the best short films from around the world for ages 8 and up! 

NYICFF Kid Flicks Two bridges the gap between little and big for young audiences growing in experiences and ideas. Take a wild ride and harness the (cat) power of the cosmos with the quirky film Catmos. If you’re curious about more earthly matters, take a page out of a Field Guide to Being a 12-Year-Old Girl. And whether their tastes lean umami or sweet, the duo in Mogu & Perol just might convince you there is simply nothing more delicious than a warm friendship.
