NYICFF ¡VIVA KID FLICKS! (2020)

Spanish language short films for ages 8+!

Presented in partnership with New York International Children’s Film Festival.

New York International Children’s Film Festival (NYICFF) Viva Kid Flicks celebrates the best Spanish-language short films from around the globe.

The brilliant Spanish-language tales in Viva Kid Flicks, with a range of kids’ perspectives, speak volumes in any tongue. NYICFF jury-award winner 3Feet kicks things off in style with Gonzalo, who tries his hilarious best to keep things clean to stay in the game; then orbit around Ailín and her mom, who work through love and challenges in the charming stop motion Ailin on the Moon. And see things grow curiouser and curiouser in a moving take on magical realism in the gorgeously filmed tale The Size of Things.
