Kid Flix Mix 2009
Kid Flix Mix 2009
Each year the Wex brings families and film fans a long weekend of incredible movies for all ages: fiction and documentary, live action and animation, features and shorts, American-made and international, contemporary and classic. Fun activities and events are also part of the schedule, often involving special guests, hands-on projects, and even tasty refreshments.
There’s something for everyone in this kaleidoscopic collection of animated films selected from the best pieces in the 2009 New York International Children’s Film Festival.
The musical and narrative shorts come from all around the world and feature a spectacular array of animation styles: traditional, CGI, collage, and stop-motion among them. Among the surprises are a music video by They Might Be Giants and adaptations of the inventive children's books The True Story of the Three Little Pigs (by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith) and Knuffle Bunny (by Mo Willems).
All works presented in English. Recommended for ages 3 and up. (65 mins., video)
