the NW Animation Festival
in Portland at the Hollywood Theater. Tickets are on Sale here now.
The Northwest Animation Festival collects excellent short animated films from around the world for screening at an annual multi-day gathering in Portland, Oregon. Our goal: to create a large local community of impassioned enthusiasts and inspired artists, and an internationally recognized hub of animation culture.
The Northwest Animation Festival is part of a long-term strategy to develop the community of animation makers and appreciators, and thereby help the art form itself to evolve. We are an organization run by animators, motivated by a deep love for this challenging medium and the desire to support each other in our creative efforts. We are educators and bridge-builders, seeking to gather all of our local affinity groups, studios, and students into one place. We provide an immersive experience that encourages people to become part of our “festival family,” which grows larger and more loyal each year. We inspire fellow artists to keep trying new and daring projects, and welcome the uninitiated to discover the joy of making animation themselves.
We aim to present the largest, most astonishing collection of animation in the USA. We showcase the art form’s diversity and help more deserving artists get seen. Using our massive film library, we work toward bringing new animation programs to cities across the region. We promote animation as one of the fine arts, and as a uniquely liberating tool for creative expression.
