Closing Night Awards Ceremony 2020

Saturday, March 8 – 5:00pm

Ages 8+

** Free event! RSVP here **

We close out the 2020 festival by screening films made in our workshops, announcing the winners of our Children’s Jury prizes, and celebrating with a surprise selection of outstanding short films made by international filmmakers.

** On Sunday, March 8, join Children’s Film Festival Seattle off-site at Rainier Arts Center (3515 S. Alaska St.) for a full day of colorful Closing Day festivities! **

Celebrating the festival’s globally-minded programs in one of Seattle’s most diverse neighborhoods, the morning will kick off with your choice of “Om Nom Nom” or “Lift-off” – two programs that combine breakfast and a film screening – and then continue throughout the day with films for all ages, intergenerational hands-on workshops, and an awards ceremony!

Finally, the entire festival closes out with a live performance by youth from the School of Spectrum Dance Theater, who will choreograph a routine exclusively in response to the evening’s feature film, Moving Stories! Moving Stories follows youth from around the world to showcase the transformative power and universal language of dance.


Om Nom Nom (All Ages Shorts Program)

Sunday, March 8 – 10:30AM

All ages

This program of animated and live-action is all about food, friends and family! You’ll meet hungry bears who forget to wash the dishes, a soup-slurping grandma who forgets her manners, sushi rolls that spring to life, a boy who dives deep into a frosty soda and friends who are happiest when they learn to stop comparing apples and oranges. The program ends with “Outgrown,” a film that takes us on a wild adventure and then back home where we belong.

74 min.

2020 Field Trip Bookings

BOOK A FIELD TRIP OR GROUP SCREENING!

FEBRUARY 27 through MID APRIL, 2020

Children’s Film Festival Seattle will offer field trip screenings for school groups on weekdays from February 27 to mid-April. Most field trips start at 10 a.m., but we can be flexible regarding times — just ask!

Short film programs, for Pre-K through middle school students run the gamut from gentle animation for our youngest viewers, to more adventurous international fare for older grades, to challenging, issues-oriented programs for middle schoolers. This year, the festival will offer all-German, all-French, all-Spanish and all-Japanese language programs as an option for educators.

* Please note our website film program listings only contain dates for public programs. For a field trip, you will choose your own date to come to the festival.

The process of booking is simple:

  1. Choose a program for your group
  2. Select three possible dates your group would be able to attend, on a weekday between February 27 through mid-April
  3. Contact ​​liz@nwfilmforum.org​​ with your request; be sure to include the name of your school, the grade level of your students, the number who will attend (including chaperones), the programs you are interested in, and the dates and times you are able to attend.

Field trip opportunities come complete with post-screening discussions and coloring sheets (for younger students) or journal pages (for selected programs, grades 3-8) that kids can take back to the classroom. Tickets for groups of 20 or more are only $5 per person! Scholarships are available for students who qualify for free or reduced-price school meals.

All field trips will be held at Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Avenue, on Capitol Hill.

We have two cinemas that can accommodate 120 and 50 people each. Groups of up to 170 people can book both theaters for a single field trip.
