18th Annual Seattle Children's Film Festival aims to 'pop' kids' bubble

One of the largest film festivals on the west coast just for children and families is currently underway in Seattle. The Northwest Film Forum's Children's Film Festival is showing over 150 films from 40 different countries.

If you expect to see cartoons and animated films at the Children's Film Festival you'd be right. But, as KNKX's Special Projects Reporter Mayowa Aina reports, the festival is designed to spark kids' curiosity, too.

Mayowa Aina reports and produces special projects, including podcasts and series, for KNKX. Mayowa started her public radio career at KUOW in Seattle. She's worked at NPR in Washington, D.C. and Alaska Public Media before moving back to her hometown of Tacoma to work at KNKX.
