Nominated in 2008 for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, Canadian filmmaker Josh Raskin and producer Jerry Levitan's film, I Met The Walrus is based on an interview of John Lennon in 1069. Levitan, then 14 years old, tracked Lennon to his hotel room at Toronto's King Edward hotel after hearing a rumor that Lennon had been sighted at the Toronto Airport. Jerry inveigled his way into John Lennon's suite and conducted an interview. The New York International Children's Film Festival was founded in 1997 to promote intelligent, passionate, provocative cinematic works for ages 3-18 and to help define a more compelling film for kids.
