This Year’s Official Selections

We are proud to announce the titles of 174 films selected for this year’s festival:


Our team of 62 film jurors worked hard to ensure that every film received a fair evaluation. In the end, there were still many excellent films that we simply could not fit into the time available. We sincerely thank every animator who submitted their work.

The biggest animation show

in the United States

This year’s festival runs May 12-18 at the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, Oregon. The heart of the festival, our juried selection of 174 amazing international shorts, repeats one week later at the Bijou Art Cinemas in Eugene during Memorial Day weekend, May 23-25.

The NW Animation Fest is a variety show that celebrates the best new work from independent animators around the globe. We showcase the breadth of this art form, screening films that are in turn hilarious, dramatic, strange and inspiring.

Portland’s schedule will include many additional special events, including after-parties, thematic programs by guest organizations, animated installation art in the theatre’s lobby, the Oregon Animation Industry Showcase and a presentation by LAIKA about their upcoming stop-motion feature film, The BoxTrolls.
