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.

Ages 8 and up. Four films, in Portuguese and Spanish, with English subtitles. Suitable for younger children, depending on reading skills or language comprehension. Running time: 70 minutes.
