A festival for the young and the young at heart, the second annual Spokane Children’s Short Film Festival this weekend presents screenings of 19 award-winning short films. Both animated and live-action, the slate of films includes creations from 11 countries around the world. Delight in stories about a tidy mouse who finds pure joy from things being in their place, a cloud and its animal-friend orchestra, and some heroic forest creatures who team up to save a tree. Organized by the Seattle-based Northwest Film Forum, the festival tours cities across the U.S., charming audiences of all ages.
