This screening is free thanks to a grant from the [Missouri Arts Council]( The New York International Children’s Film Festival is North America’s largest festival of film for children and teens, and stands at the forefront of a movement to define a new, more provocative and compelling film for kids. Each year the festival presents a carefully curated collection of the best new animation, live action and experimental film from around the world in an exhilarating festival atmosphere with all the immediacy and excitement of a Cannes or Sundance. A diverse community must put aside their differences to enjoy a tasty meal in Stone Soup (France/Belgium), a hungry creature devises a way to get his fill in Tiger (Germany), and a young croc enjoys a tasty treat in Crocodile (Germany). With visually innovative animation and many Audience Award winners from New York International Children’s Film Festival 2017, Kid Flix 1 is truly delicious for ages 3-7. **OUTDOOR CINEMA** Russia/Australia Animation, Tatiana Poliektova, 2014, 3 min The best cinema of all reflects what is right in front of us, in this homage to all things that capture our eye. **THE BIRDIE** Russia Animation, Yekaterina Filippova, 2015, 3 min Once a birdie met a hippo.
