Over the past nine years, the Children’s Film Festival Seattle has become the largest, most respected film festival on the West Coast dedicated to young people and their families. We present a showcase of the most innovative, inspiring and fun short films from this year’s festival. In these films, kids face off against the odds by making decisions that are sometimes wise, sometimes brash, sometimes brave but always full of imagination. Bring your kids to see the world and feed their minds with this international collection celebrating the indomitable spirit of the child.
