JUMP! wins Global Zoom Award at Seattle Children's Fest

The children's jury of Children's Film Festival Seattle awarded the festival's Global Zoom Award for Intercultural Understanding and Cooperation to JUMP!

Big thanks to Liz Shepard and the Northwest Film Forum for inviting JUMP! to participate at the festival and to Treeswing -- a great organization dedicated to the mission of bringing physical activity and healthy habits into children’s lives -- for sponsoring us.

Special thanks also to Hot Dog USA, who came out to perform and teach at several screenings. They definitely earned themselves some new fans!

Here's a slide show of photos from the festival.
