LONGING AND BELONGING

Best of Seattle Children’s Film Fest

Recommended for ages 8+, but can also be appreciated by most younger viewers.

This collection of live-action shorts show how kids from all over the world long for the same things: to love, to laugh, to share time with their families, and find their passions. Get globally aware as you meet sweet children who dream of their homeland, boys and girls who feel passionately drawn to the arts, best friends who must overcome bullying, a boy who learns a big lesson about his parents, and an Alaskan Yup’ik teen who competes not for himself, but for his whole community. Films in this international live-action shorts film program include: Displacement (Malaysia), The Debt (Ireland), Shirin’s Dream (Iran), and Valentino (Brazil). Several films contain English subtitles.
