There’s probably still a dirty patch of snow or two left on Capitol Hill but things are decidedly back to normal. Go stomp in a puddle. Add your Capitol Hill events to the CHS Calendar.

  • The 2012 Children’s Film Festival Seattle opens at 12th Ave’s Northwest Film Forum tonight. CHS is a proud co-sponsor. Plays through the weekend and into the week. And there are still tickets left for Saturday’s pancake breakfast.


Northwest Film Forum is pleased to announce the 7th annual Children’s Film Festival Seattle, to be held January 26 through February 5 at the Film Forum’s cinemas in Seattle. The largest children’s film festival in the Pacific Northwest, Children’s Film Festival Seattle celebrates the best and brightest in international children’s cinema with a 10-day extravaganza of more than 100 films from almost 30 countries. This year’s edition includes a mind-blowing blend of programs that include live performances, animation, features, shorts, historical films and fantastic hands-on workshops for the filmmakers of tomorrow. 

Additional screenings for school and childcare groups are scheduled on Friday, January 27 and Mondays through Fridays February 6 through February 24. 

This year’s festival will begin on Thursday, Jan. 26 with the Seattle premiere of Michel Ocelot’s “Tales of the Night,” a film that wowed audiences at this year’s Berlin Film Festival. The festival fun will continue on Friday, Jan. 27, with a rockin’ pajama party for ages 3 and older, featuring a sneak preview of animated films from the festival, and a concert by Caspar Babypants, a high-octane kids’ band fronted by Seattle music legend Chris Ballew, of The Presidents of the United States of America. Other Festival highlights will include “Fire and Ice,” a retrospective of animation from Russia’s famed SHAR Studio and Animation School, founded in 1993 by a group of top Russian animators; a live performance of “String,” a new theater piece for very young audiences by Seattle movement artist Mary Margaret Moore; and of course our popular Pancake Breakfast.
