Children’s Film Festival Seattle 2013 Day 1: Short & Sweet


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.

This gentle lineup of animated films is a perfect introduction to big screen wonders for your little one. Meet a dancing bear, play with a mischievous hen, get to know pixies and encounter other lovely, lovable creatures.

Ages 2 to 6. Three films, in Mandarin and Portuguese, with English subtitles, but dialogue is not needed for understanding. Running time: 46 minutes.
