The 13th annual Children's Film Festival Seattle brightened our screens from January 25th to February 10th, 2018

Each year, we showcase over 180 films from across the world that represent the very best in visual storytelling for young people and that align with our values of racial equity and diversity, social justice, and global awareness.

Guest filmmakers from around the world are on hand at each festival to enlighten audiences about how their films were made, and young audience members get a chance to step behind the camera to make their own films at festival workshops.

At Children’s Film Festival Seattle, the kids are always in charge! For the 12th Children’s Film Festival Seattle, we reached a wonderful milestone — our youth jury was led by a group of amazing teenaged graduates of the jury program, which began in 2007.
