It’s a wrap! After 11 days of movie-watching, animating, pancake-and-bacon eating, film reviewing, Super Bowl schedule-shuffling, language learning and dancing in pajamas, the 2014 Children’s Film Festival Seattle has come to a close. Thanks for being with us for a festival full of small people and big characters.
Congratulations to our 2014 Festival prize winners—read the full list below!
During the festival each year, Seattle children ages 10 – 14 form a youth jury; their responsibilities include reviewing a full slate of films in competition and awarding official festival prizes.
In addition to an on-site children’s jury, in 2014 Northwest Film Forum and Seattle Children’s Hospital also hosted the second annual satellite jury delegation, comprised of eight young hospital patients, who viewed their own competition slate of short films.
