High Above the sky will screen at 9th Children’s Film Festival Seattle
Over the past 8 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 films accepted in the CFFS will also be considered for the 2014 REDCAT International Children’s Film Festival, which CFFS director Elizabeth Shepherd has curated for the past 8 years.
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. The 11-day extravaganza celebrates the best and brightest in international cinema for children, featuring live performances, animation, features, shorts and hands-on education workshops, all crafted with care to appeal to the next generation of movie lovers. 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, as our young audience members leave with a better understanding of film as one of the greatest means of storytelling ever created.
