Northwest Film Forum

Is there anything kids can’t do? In this lively mix of live-action and animated films from seven countries, you’ll see what kids can accomplish, know, and show others—sometimes with a little help from important grown-ups in their lives, but mostly all on their own.

This program includes films from Germany, Spain, Argentina, USA, Nepal, Anishinaabe/Canada, and France.

Watch all of this year’s films with a festival pass (starting at $30) or purchase tickets to individual film programs (starting at $5). Pricing is on a sliding scale, and we encourage you to pay what you are able—all ticket and pass sales go to support BAM Education, helping to ensure the future of BAM’s adventurous programming for families and students.

All events and workshops associated with the Festival are free and open to all.

Time for Adventure is available for viewing starting February 20 and runs through February 28. Tickets will be available through Eventive, which requires customers to create an account before purchasing. All customers who purchase a ticket will receive an email confirmation with a link to the program; once the link is clicked, viewers have 48 hours to watch the program until it expires. Customers who purchase a ticket on February 27 or later will only be able to view the program until 11:59pm on February 28.
