IthaKid Film Fest

Bring the kids! Each year, on Saturdays in the late fall and early spring, Cornell Cinema and the Ithaca Youth Bureau present the IthaKid Film Fest, a series of unusual children’s programs, most offered at the low price of just $4 for adults and $3 for kids 12 and younger. This spring’s installment features beautiful 35mm prints of the classic French insect documentary, Microcosmos, and an animated gem from Studio Ghibli, The Cat Returns (the English language version). Rounding out the fest will be the recent and thoroughly enjoyable Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2; this year’s Kid Flix Mix, selected shorts from the New York International Children’s Film Festival; and finally, the most recent and exceedingly enjoyable take on the damsel-in-distress trope, Frozen. Check individual film pages for age recommendations.
