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 girls and boys in these films are full a determination to live life to the fullest — despite obstacles and challenges that sometimes seem daunting. You'll be amazed by their ingenuity, strength and sense of adventure. See the world and feed your mind with this collection of live action shorts.
