MOCAD and Cinema Detroit present KID FLICKS

Saturday, Nov. 18 • 12 - 4 p.m.

Admission is FREE

Presented in partnership with

New York International Children’s Film Festival (NYICFF)

Experience audience favorite and award-winning short films from the latest edition of NYICFF! These shorts from around the world are sure to inspire curiosity and conversation for viewers big and small.

With animation, live action, and documentary shorts KID FLICKS offers a chance to explore new frontiers from around the world to right here in Michigan and the ever-expanding boundaries of our own perspectives. Though these films need no translation, all are in English or have English subtitles,

KID FLICKS 1 (Runtime 63 min.) Whether dreaming up the fantastical, like a spider’s goal to capture the moon, or the practical, like a young animator’s future stardom, these shorts are sure to enchant and delight all audiences (but especially our youngest!).

KID FLICKS 2 (Runtime 82 min.) is full of challenges big and small: with obstacles like saving a beloved pet goat and navigating a lunar eclipse, this program is full of vibrancy and adventure.

While these short films were chosen with kids in mind, adults — especially lovers of animation — will find them fascinating as well.

This program is made possible with generous support from the Mandell L. and Madeleine H. Berman Foundation and Mike Kelley’s Space for Public Good, generously supported by The Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts. 

This show is at MOCAD. Please don't go to 4126 Third Street, we won't be there. 

Reservations or RSVPs are not required for this free screening. Just show up anytime between noon and 4:00 p.m. and stay as long as you like.
