Family Friendly 2016

Saturday, May 9 at 1:30pm  |  $8  |

Savvy adult enthusiasts and kids discovering indie animation for the first time will both enjoy our popular Family Friendly selection of shorts. Who hasn't dreamed of plucking a star from the fabric of the night sky, or striking up a friendship with some misty, mythical beast? Imagination, humor, and the spirit of play define this fun collection of new—yet instantly classic—animations.

Here's some of what you'll see: When a steampunk pixie's airship fails, an inventive young human uses her own passion for flying machines to help put him back in the sky. A zebra accidentally breaks its own stripes, and struggles to put them back in their proper place. A group of children discover a mysterious bone that may belong to previously undiscovered species. A colossal elephant, yearning for a bicycle of its own, works hard to save enough money by sweeping the city streets and cutting back on bananas. While working on a new film, an animator's upstart drawing takes over the project and starts causing all kinds of mischief.
