RICFF: Seize the Day

Presented in partnership with Northwest Film Forum

Some days seem made for saying “hip-hip-hooray,” but other days can bring challenges and hills to climb. These animated films are filled with stories of breakthroughs and learning to appreciate how our friends and families can make the world go around in the most magical way.
