NW Animation Fest - Shorts 4

Sunday afternoon showcases more of the fantastic visions that only animation can conjure. Here’s some of what you’ll see: Where forest and city meet, a human-shaped deer tries to steal a man's family by taking away his head. Studying a solar eclipse on some distant planet, two scientists discover a gateway to... Somewhere else. Following a character known only as "the assassin," legendary stop-motion animator Phil Tippett (Star Wars) leads us into the surreal and hypnotic landscape of his new independent film series, Mad God.

Our wildly popular “Strange & Sexy” block begins after second intermission. It's a very peculiar romp through the wilds of psyche and sexuality that you won’t want to miss!

(Includes 35 films, two intermissions. Explicit sexuality during final hour.)

MEET THE ANIMATORS | 12:00-12:45pm
