This year offers a fantastic program with films for pre-schoolers up through middle school. The films hail from around the world and include many in English but several for French, Icelandic, Dutch, German, Swedish, Japanese and Swahili speakers too. The subject matter ranges from silly to serious, animation to documentary — giving kids to a chance to see the world and explore issues from new perspectives. And you can help raise money for our PTA by selecting PS58 in the menu when you purchase your tickets at https://nyicff.org/tickets/.
