“Dream Catchers” is a collection of prizewinning and audience-favorite live action films from the Children’s Film Festival Seattle 2018, for children ages 8+. Who says being a kid is easy? The young people in these films must overcome all kinds of challenges, big and small, to follow their dreams. Meet a non-gender-conforming kid who finds courage in a new friendship, a boy who discovers the healing power of art, a child who finds a wily way to lure a teacher to his town, a girl who overcomes her fear of strange food, and a boy and his father who form a bond over a simple Japanese dish. This program concludes with a documentary about a talented young Iraqi refugee, living in Lebanon, and a film from Puerto Rico that will urges youth to look up from their screens, and see the beautiful world around them.
During the school year, special programs are scheduled on the last Wednesday of the month at 3:30 pm. Children will need a note to be dropped off by the school bus. We really appreciate knowing in advance how many children will be attending, so please register by calling 860-542-5075 at least four days before the program. Refreshments are provided. Thank you!
