Saturdays at 2pm
This semi-annual festival features high quality children’s programs on Saturdays at 2pm in the beautiful Willard Straight Theatre, offered for just $5 adults / $4 kids 12 & younger. Some films are repeated on Sundays for $5.50/all. This spring’s installment of the Festival kicks-off with the Ithaca premiere of the acclaimed Brazilian film Boy & the World; entirely wordless and beautifully animated, it illustrates a clash between poor and rich, countryside and city, indigenous and imperial, handcrafted and mechanized. Other highlights include a sing-along with the ever-popular Disney film, Frozen, and Kid Flix 1, a new program of animated shorts for young viewers from the most recent New York Children’s International Film Festival. Cosponsored with the Ithaca Youth Bureau.
