How cool is it that Capitol Hill kids have their own film fest? Pretty cool

CHS has been partnering with the Northwest Film Forum for a few years now but it was only recently that we matured into a big enough media player to co-present the prestigious Children’s Film Festival Seattle. It’s an honor. Don’t bask too long in CHS’s pride, moms and dads and the rest of you — tickets go fast. Details on the 2011 festival are below.

The January 28 to February 6 festival will have more films than ever. “We’ve taken a leap forward this year at Children’s Film Festival Seattle, with a significant increase in the number of films in our festival,” said director Elizabeth Shepherd. “This year’s fest is bursting at the seams with films that are colorful and fun, and programs that present new cultures and ideas to children.”

You can get full details and purchase tickets — $6.50 for kids, $9.00 for adults — at

Some of this year’s highlights will be an opening night kickoff to the festival by the rockin’ kids band, Casper Babypants; an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast; a program spotlighting the best in animation from China, curated by the acclaimed animator Joe Chang; screenings of the rarely seen Mary Pickford silent film, A Little Princess, with a new live score performed by acclaimed harpist Leslie McMichael; a program celebrating the achievements of indigenous filmmakers worldwide, and more feature films and shorts than ever before!

  1. Everyone knows in addition to the unspoken humiliation that is the lack of vegetarian options on The Hill that residents of said Hill have never, ever done anything to celebrate the existence of people that are not adults and the adults who chose to have them. Please quit printing false info.
