Sunday, March 8 – 10:30AM
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.
** 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.
