New York International Children's Film Festival has an outstanding lineup this year, including a wonderful array of films from Japan. For younger children, they are showing Rudolf the Black Cat, a touching (and adorable) story of a cat who leaves his comfortable home in Gifu and winds up in Tokyo under the wing of Gottalot, a seasoned street cat who teaches Rudolf to read the human language. They are also showing a Panda! Go Panda! two delightful featurettes brought to you by the legendary team that formed Studio Ghibli. For the older kids, they have two incredible anime films: Ancien and the Magic Tablet and - Japanese box office hit - Your Name. The festival is supported under the JFNY Grant for Arts and Culture.
The film festival takes place from February 24 to March 19 at various venues. For the complete lineup and tickets, please visit NYICFF's website.
