Family Flix @ Asia Society
Still from The Night of the Elephant. (Sandra Schiessl)

The internationally lauded Children’s Film Festival Seattle returns to Asia Society Texas Center for more films overflowing with adventure and glee, wonder and magic. Now in its 8th year, the Festival has become one of the largest and most respected film festivals dedicated to children and their families. This year, curator Elizabeth Shepherd and her colleagues have created feasts for the eyes that take us from China to Colombia.

This program of beautiful animation is designed to delight kids who love critters both large and small. Enjoy the antics of elephants, birds, foxes, mice, pigs, hedgehogs, dogs and cats, and meet a seriously hardworking ant!

Ages 4 and up. Three films, in Dutch and German, with English subtitles, but dialogue is not needed for understanding. Running time: 56 minutes.
