National Film Festival for Talented Youth, Seattle (NFFTY)

Every year, CAAM Families travel to Seattle, Washington for the biggest student film festival in the world!  We love visiting with student filmmakers from all over the planet and being inspired by the films.  While our students do bring home awards, the purpose of this festival is to gain new friends and learn what’s going on in the world of filmmaking!
