And here's some key info:
This year's festival will begin on Thursday, Jan. 26 with the Seattle premiere of Michel Ocelot's "Tales of the Night," a film that wowed audiences at this year's Berlin Film Festival. The festival fun will continue on Friday, Jan. 27, with a rockin' pajama party for ages 3 and older, featuring a sneak preview of animated films from the festival, and a concert by Caspar Babypants, a high-octane kids' band fronted by Seattle music legend Chris Ballew, of The Presidents of the United States of America. Other Festival highlights will include "Fire and Ice," a retrospective of animation from Russia's famed SHAR Studio and Animation School, founded in 1993 by a group of top Russian animators; a live performance of "String," a new theater piece for very young audiences by Seattle movement artist Mary Margaret Moore; and of course our popular Pancake Breakfast.
