Children’s Film Festival Seattle 2013 Day 1: See the World ANIMATED!


Family Flix @ Asia Society

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.

Feel like taking a trip around the world? Then hop aboard a celluloid magic carpet to take a trip all the way from the Arctic to Mozambique, with stops along the way to see animated sights in Instanbul, Germany, France, Argentina, Germany and India!

All ages. A few scenes depicting danger in a couple of films, but there are always happy endings. One film has subtitles (German). Running time: 67 minutes.
