January 28 – February 6, 2011
(with additional screenings for school groups February 7-25)

Northwest Film Forum is getting ready to roll out the red carpet for Children’s Film Festival Seattle — the largest international festival of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. This year’s 10-day extravaganza will include more than 100 films from 25 countries — a mind-blowing blend of live performances, animation, features, shorts, historical films and fantastic hands-on workshops, all crafted with care to appeal to the next generation of movie lovers.

Some of this year’s highlights will be an opening night kickoff to the festival by the rockin’ kids band, Casper Babypants; an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast; a program spotlighting the best in animation from China, curated by the acclaimed animator Joe Chang; screenings of the rarely-seen Mary Pickford silent film, “A Little Princess,” with a new live score performed by acclaimed harpist Leslie McMichael; a program celebrating the achievements of indigenous filmmakers worldwide, and more feature films and shorts than ever before!

It’s a one-of-a-kind chance to take a celluloid ride around the globe, to see films made by acclaimed filmmakers and up-and-coming new auteurs. Our programs are inspiring, magical and definitely not available on DVD. There are gentle, enchanting programs for tiny first-time movie-goers, chills and thrills for older, more adventurous viewers and films that will inspire young people to get involved and make a difference.

 What better way to spend a chilly day in January or February than to see the world and feed your mind at Children’s Film Festival Seattle?
