All Children Smile in the Same Language

The Children's International Film Festival offers short films from around the world for the young as well as the young at heart. Some films are animated, some are live-action. There are two programs – one recommended for children 3-7 and a second for ages 8-18. Along with films from the U.S., this year's Festival includes short films from France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Iran and the Czech Republic. So get ready to set sail on an incredible journey. Befriend a monster. Uncover a mystery. Visit a foreign country — or a foreign planet. The Ryder invites you and your kiddos and your imaginations to explore new frontiers through the best new films from around the world. No passport required.
