Children's Film Festival Seattle 2020 [Online]


Children’s Film Festival Seattle 2020’s cinema programs at Northwest Film Forum were postponed by the coronavirus public health crisis — but now we’re back online to close out the festival with web-based screenings of seven short film programs, and one award-winning feature film, streamed straight into your home sweet home!

Stay Home Sweet Home with Children’s Film Festival Seattle!

The programs, showcasing the best and brightest in visual storytelling for children, include 60 animation, live-action and documentary films from 27 nations, all centered on the experience of childhood.

The films also provide, in this time of staying safe at home, a window to the greater world, inspiring empathy, understanding, and global awareness.

All screenings will come with bonus activities — including coloring pages, discussion guides and links to filmmaking resources — that children and families can do together to build on the topics and fun found in the films.

Festival highlights include:

  • Gentle animation for the youngest viewers
  • Action-packed fare appropriate for older kids and adults
  • A rollicking all-ages collection of films about cats
  • A topical program centering on urgent environmental issues
  • An all-Spanish-language program from Latin America, for native and student speakers
  • The acclaimed Kenyan feature film, Supa Modo

Join us May 13 to 17, to see the world and feed your minds. We aim to provide family screen time’s finest hour with these international programs.
