Children's Film Festival Seattle welcomes all families Jan 25-Feb 10

Northwest Film Forum is getting ready to roll out the red carpet for its 2018 edition of Children's Film Festival Seattle - the largest and most respected festival of its kind west of the Mississippi.

Dedicated to children and their families and celebrating its 13th edition, the festival will stretch out over the course of two weeks, from its opening night on January 25 to its closing afternoon awards ceremony on February 10, with most screenings at Northwest Film Forum (1515 12th Ave), in the bustling heart of Capitol Hill. Opening night, presented in partnership with Seattle International Film Festival, will take place at the Egyptian Theatre (805 E Pine St), also on Capitol Hill.

Inspiring empathy, understanding, and a nuanced views of the world, the beloved family-friendly extravaganza celebrates the best and brightest in international cinema that is age-appropriate for ages 2-14, and will include 168 films from 55 nations, spanning the globe from North to South America, Africa, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. The festival includes animation and live-action shorts, features, and hands-on filmmaking workshops, all crafted with care to appeal to a wide range of age groups.

What we stand for: Racial equity and diversity, inclusivity, social justice, global awareness, and the best of age-appropriate visual story telling for young people.

The festival also includes a number of programs that celebrate families and kids of all genders and makeup. For example, Mrs. McCutcheon in the shorts program, 'Dream Chasers,' is a heartfelt coming of age story about a 10-year-old boy who feels he was born in the wrong body and is trying to get the world around him to accept him. In the shorts program, 'No Walls,' the film Game follows the story of a determined high school sophomore who moves to a new town and tests the limits of an all boys high school basketball team. In the shorts program, 'Never Say Never,' the film Amelia's Closet is an emotionally fused film about overcoming bullying. The film Hedgehog's Home in the shorts program, 'House of Memory,' is a stunning and delicately choreographed stop-motion fable - made entirely of needled felt - that revives the timeless and timely notion of cultivating our own place of safety, dignity and comfort.

Features also show strong kids overcoming gender stereotypes. Girlhood is celebrated in Fanny's Journey, Wendy, and Castle In The Sky. Not Without Us tells the amazing story of kids united in their rejection of violence.

'We want children to come to the festival not only to be entertained by funny and fantastic films but also to discover common ground and envision their places in the wider world,' said Elizabeth Shepherd, Seattle Children's Film Festival Director.

Full festival schedule and tickets available at www.childrensfilmfestivalseattle.org. Admission to most public programs is $7 for Film Forum members, $9 for children under 12 and seniors, and $12 general admission. Special pricing applies to some programs. Festival passes are also available.
