Earlier this year, NW Animation Fest hosted a five-day extravaganza of contemporary animation. Now, we’ve boiled it all down to just one astonishing show. Audience members in two cities helped select this year’s “Best of the Fest” by voting for their favorite titles. Special award winners will be announced at the event. If you can only see one animation show in 2017, this is the one you don’t want to miss!

Sept 15 Best of the Fest – PORTLAND

Join us at our home venue, the Hollywood Theatre, on Friday evening at 7:00 & 9:30pm for a one-night-only celebration. (buy tickets)

Sept 23 Best of the Fest – EUGENE

The Broadway Metro micro-cinema in downtown Eugene will have Saturday screenings at 12:30, 2:45, 5:00, 7:15, & 9:30pm. Seating is very limited, so get your tickets soon. (buy tickets)


Our next full-scale festival will take place May 23-27, 2018, at the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, Oregon. The heart of the festival, our juried selection of 150+ international short films, will repeat on June 1-3 at the Bijou Art Cinemas in Eugene.

The NW Animation Fest is a variety show that celebrates the best new work from independent animators around the globe. Portland’s schedule will include many additional special events, including thematic programs, guest organizations, displays in the theatre’s lobby, after-parties, and more.
