Children's Film Festival Returns to the Redcat

The Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater (REDCAT) brings back its annual International Children's Film Festival starting this Saturday, March 26, and continuing through April 17.

Tix are just $5 per screening; we took Evan to the event two years ago for a screening of shorts (read about our experience here), and noted at the time that it was truly the "only film festival where crying, talking and sleeping during a movie is deemed acceptable behavior."

More details on this year:

Presented by CalArts in partnership with Northwest Film Forum, the festival features four weekends of mind-expanding programs of short films from around the globe made by acclaimed filmmakers and up-and-coming auteurs alike. More than 100 works of wondrous animation and exhilarating live-action have been hand-selected and grouped into programs designed for children as young as two years of age by festival curator Elizabeth Sheperd.

This audience favorite offers a treasure trove of enchanting programs for tiny tots, chills and thrills for adventurous older viewers, and films sure to inspire the whole family. Festival highlights include new animation from China curated by acclaimed animator Joe Chang, emerging talents of indigenous filmmakers from around the world, and a very special Nick Family Fun Day on Sunday, March 27, 2011.
Tix are $5 per screening; I definitely recommend. Check out the schedule here.
