Seattle Children's Film Festival

It’s winter, and a young girl sits alone on a bench outside a playground, her face scrunched in anger and sadness as she noisily extends and collapses her orange Slinky. Taking her by surprise, a truck accidentally leaves behind a cluster of balloons. This scene and the events that follow are the live-action short film Balloons. Films like these — the full lineup includes 17 total, the best of this year — are coming to the Bing from the Seattle Children’s Film Festival. The event, suitable for ages 5 and up, is accessible to everyone, since anyone can (and should) appreciate a story about balloons, singing octopi or a magical kitchen.

Wed, July 8, at 7 pm; Sat, July 11, at 11 am • $5 • Bing Crosby Theater • 901 W. Sprague • • 227-7638
