Tilt Kids Festival

The Tilt Kids Festival is a new festival of the arts that talks up—not down—to children, sparking their imaginations and encouraging their dreams. The Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) have joined forces to present gems from France and around the world, together with commissioned work from New York artists for the savviest of audiences, our kids.

Both institutions are thrilled to embark on this new adventure with a network of leading cultural institutions: The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), Museum of Food + Drink, NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, The New Victory Theater, and The Invisible Dog Art Center.

Philosophy and music, circus and magic, design, dance and gastronomy come together in a series of ambitious and playful events specially curated for the audiences of today and tomorrow.

Join us for this month-long adventure, and let’s re-imagine the world!


The Tilt Kids Festival is presented by the French Institute Alliance Française and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S.

Special thanks to our supporters: Air France, Delta Air Lines, Florence Gould Foundation, Howard Gilman Foundation, FACE Foundation, French Ministry of Culture and Communication, Institut français, and SACD (Société des auteurs et compositeurs dramatiques).
