Over the past nine years, Children’s Film Festival Seattle has become the largest and most respected film festival on the West Coast dedicated to children and their families. Each year, Northwest Film Forum selects more than 120 international children’s films from 35+ countries, reaching more than 10,000 people during festival screenings in Seattle and a subsequent festival tour of 15-20 U.S. cities.
All over the world, filmmakers are crafting works of exhilarating imagination and creativity just for kids. Northwest Film Forum curates the best of these films and presents them to Seattle families from January 23 – February 2, 2014. By showcasing innovative, inspiring and fun films from around the globe, we promote delight, discussion and even debate while sparking interest in different languages and ways of life. Through workshops, pre-and post-film discussions and encounters with filmmakers, we encourage our young audience members to sharpen their critical skills and leave with a better understanding of film as one of the greatest means of storytelling ever created.
