Viva Kid Flicks

  • Friday August 05, 2022 1:00 PM

New York International Children’s Film Festival 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 Gonzálo, 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.  
65 minutes, Spanish with English subtitles
