Best of the NW Animation Festival

A debonair caterpillar woos his lady with flamenco guitar. Demon pilots fight a desperate aerial duel. A chicken cheerfully strolls the streets of New York-despite mad men, hipsters, and hungry mutant zombies.

The Northwest Animation Festival presents this year's audience favorites. The special one-night event includes 16 films from around the world-including Oscar contenders and the 2012 winner for Best Animated Short. If you missed the big fest in May, here's your chance to sample the cream of the crop!

A magic library revives storm-devastated New Orleans in "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore". A strange creature races against time to make the most important and beautiful creation of his life in "The Maker." After laughing uncontrollably at Mrs. Dombilard's mischievous cat, one of our audience members named her own new pet after the titular character of "Pushkin."

Hilarious, dramatic and inspiring, this memorable variety show holds delights for every taste!
