Throughout the year, the YAC provides support for film clubs and classes at local middle and high schools and dedicates its time to filming projects for local non-profits as well as putting together the program for the Youth Pavilion.

Bigger, brighter, bolder: Change is in the air in Kid Flicks One, brimming with fun and clever stories of growth and transformation. If you’ve ever been the youngest, you’ll sympathize with the little tadpole who always falls a tad behind in the charming KUAP.

Presented in partnership with the New York International Children’s Film Festival.

If you’re curious about more earthly matters, take a page out of a Field Guide to Being a 12-Year-Old Girl. And whether their tastes lean umami or sweet, the duo in Mogu & Perol just might convince you there is simply nothing more delish than a warm friendship.
