 NY Intl Childrens Film Festival

Mythopolis (Czech Republic 11 minutes)  A small minotaur, his Mum Medusa, a Cyclops delivery guy, the neighbors the Grey Sisters… Legendary characters from the Greek mythology live their lives and solve their problems in today’s world.

Tigers Tied Up in One Rope (France 8 minutes) an extremely lazy young boy is harassed by his mother who cannot bear to see him eat and sleep all day long, day after day. He eventually decides to get to work and shows unexpected imagination, creativity and tenacity.

Johnny Express (South Korea 5 minutes)  In the year 2150, Johnny is an award-winning but incredibly lazy space delivery man: his spaceship does all the work while he lounges around, though he does have to get up and do the actual delivery of the package itself. Then one day, he arrives at a planet he doesn’t quite understand, and the consequences are horrifyingly, uproariously funny.

In the Beginning (USA 2.5 minutes)  There can be no doubt that a little girl had a hand in the Creation.

The Trumpeter (Mexico 10 minutes) Despite obstacles, a trumpet player finds his inner voice. In doing so, he creates a wild, colorful freedom for his fellow musicians.

In Layla’s Melody (Denmark, Afghanistan 16 minutes)  Eleven-year-old Layla lives in an orphanage in Kabul, and despite the many sacrifices she has endured – including not seeing her family for four years – her passion for music and education keeps her optimistic.

The Single Life (Netherlands 2 minutes)  When playing a mysterious vinyl single, Pia is suddenly able to travel through her life.

Oh My Dog (Belgium 6.5 minutes) In front of a raging, rowdy, crowd, the most outstanding dogs face each other to measure their talents and strengths. The results may shock you.
These short films are rated for all ages, but targeted at ages 9 to adult.
