Finding My Way

REDCAT International Children's Film Festival: Finding My Way

Presented in partnership with Northwest Film Forum

These award-winning live action films tell the stories of kids who are learning how to spread their wings. Along the way, they have adventures, test their courage, and make decisions they have to stick with. Join them and wander a city’s unfamiliar streets, set foot in a whole new country and find the courage to be exactly who you are. Subjects explored include immigration, resisting stereotypes, and gender identification.
