A wide range of work from the Netherlands will be presented and shared at festivals, conferences and other platforms, all representing a respect for young people and dedication to youth culture as an autonomous art form.

Catch the best short films from the Netherlands! (Recommended for ages 8+)

New York International Children’s Film Festival crossed the Atlantic to join forces with Cinekid, The Netherlands’s premiere film festival for children, to share a program of the very best of Dutch animation—featuring diverse stories, hilarious romps, inventive animation, and more! With trusted scissors in hand, Mr. Paper makes choice cuts to craft his ideal world. Blooming with artful animation and wistful storytelling, Emily was spotlighted as the Netherlands’s entry for Oscar consideration. Then three very different kids, all friends, find out what it truly means to walk a day in each other’s shoes…and legs, and torsos in this hilarious International Emmy–award winner Heads Together. Six short films in all (approx. 74 mins.)
