NW Animation Fest - Saturday Afternoon

Saturday afternoon is an all ages show for savvy animation-loving adults, which is also safe and fun for kids. Here's some of what you'll see: A young girl's embarrassingly eccentric grandfather creates a miraculous, living elephant creature from trash on the beach… A clever prison inmate tricks the guards into plowing his aging father's farm… A bear who rides the motorcycle in a traveling circus returns to the forest and discovers an unexpected friend… A mysterious huckster brings disaster to the green village when he introduces a strange blue flower… Risking his own life, a snow golem escorts a lost fire wolf cub back to its pack. This program features "Thank You," a new film from Pendleton Ward, creator of the hit series "Adventure Time."

(Two intermissions. All ages.)

Bring the kids! Special $5 ticket for youth <18 at this screening only.
