Children’s Film Festival Seattle 2013 Day 3: For the Beauty of the Earth

Family Flix @ Asia Society
Still from That Which Once Was. (Kimi Takesue)

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.

The silver screen goes green for this collection of live-action and animated shorts about our ever-changing planet. These humorous and thought-provoking films are designed to make kids think, ask questions and come up with new ways to honor Mother Earth.

Ages 8 and up. The film Damned is about beavers! Running time: 60 minutes.
