During our temporary closure, we're excited to bring you opportunities to watch new release titles on your home screen while directly supporting Amherst Cinema. When you watch these Virtual Cinema films at home, the cost of the digital "ticket" is split between the film distributor and Amherst Cinema—just like with a ticket purchased at our box office.

Amherst Cinema is proud to present two programs of shorts from the New York International Children's Film Festival. This is program one, which is built for ages 3 and up. For program two, built for ages 8 and up, click here.

The New York International Children’s Film Festival brings you a great opportunity to share the art of film with kids, with this program filled with fun and clever stories of growth and transformation.

If you’ve ever been the youngest of the group, you’ll sympathize with the little tadpole who always falls a tad behind in the charming KUAP. Catching up on penmanship is the name of the game if you want to graduate from pencils in the winning doc PEN LICENCE. Then little ones are in charge and grown-ups get to play when the hilarious FLIPPED reworks the script. And more!

With films from 10 countries, these shorts are sure to delight and inspire. All shorts are either in English or without dialogue.
