Children's Film Festival Seattle 2021 [Online]
For the 16th Annual Children’s Film Festival Seattle (February 18-28, 2021), Northwest Film Forum goes completely virtual to honor the theme of “Love & Light” amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
To inspire empathy, understanding, and a nuanced view of the world, this year’s festival will feature four feature films and 16 short film programs representing 36 countries, with live-action and animated films delineated by age-appropriate viewing brackets. In total, there are 133 films in the festival this year.

Each year, more than 25 youth ages 8-15 participate on youth-led juries to view films and award official prizes to CFFS’ short and feature films. Youth are the ultimate decision-makers on these panels, which provide an excellent opportunity for NWFF’s young film lovers to sharpen their critical eye and have meaningful opportunities to engage with other youth around issues of great importance to them.
*At this time, we are especially looking for youth ages 8-11 and 15-19
