NW Animation Fest - Friday Night

Opening night includes nearly 30 astonishing short films. Here's some of what you'll see: A thief who steals famous paintings, eats them, and is physically transformed by what he consumes… Two cavemen in search of a fabled mathematical dinosaur… A romance of amoebas, as witnessed through the lens of a microscope… A young New Yorker who finds the girl of his dreams with help from an army of enchanted paper airplanes… The death and rebirth of a flying piano… A mad entomologist, whose discovery of a strange horned beetle allows him to change perception of time. Featured films include "Pythagasaurus," from the makers of Wallace & Gromit - and this year's Oscar-winner for Best Animated Short, "Paperman."

(Two intermissions. Some mature themes.)

Join us afterwards at Tony Starlight's for ASIFA-Portland's "Drink & Draw" - a fun way to try making animation yourself!
