Vashon family Film Festival

Vashon Film Society presents the Vashon Family Film Festival on Saturday, November 22 from 12 noon to 2:15 pm. The afternoon of live action and animated short films is brought to the Vashon Theatre every year by Northwest Film Forum’s Liz Shepherd. Shepherd curates a “best of” selection for island audiences from her renowned week-long long Children’s Film Festival Seattle. This year’s films are from Europe, Asia and the U.S. and feature clever creatures, captivating stories, and whimsical animation.

“Rabbit and Deer,” the winner of three 2014 CFFS prizes (including Most Popular Film and Children’s Hospital Jury Prize for best animated film), is a Hungarian charmer about two unlikely companions working to make their friendship last. And farm-dwelling islanders will especially enjoy the U.K. short “The Goat Herder and His Lots and Lots and Lots of Goats.”

The 12 noon show (57 minutes) is a collection of animated films, followed by a live action program (58 minutes) at 1:15 pm, making it possible for families to catch just a single screening or stay for both. Tickets to either the animation or live action program are $7/all ages, but movie goers can save and see both film programs (with that all-important brief intermission to visit the snack bar) for $10!
