NW Animation Fest 2016

Official Selections Announced!

We are proud to announce the titles of 153 films selected for this year’s festival:


Our team of 106 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.


Tickets and week-long passes will be available soon. Sign up here for breaking festival news.
