NW Animation Fest presents a full week of events at the Hollywood Theatre: feature films, international short film marathons, an Oregon Animation Industry Showcase, and special topic screenings. Features include Oscar-nominated Song of the Sea, which follows the magical journey of an Irish seal-girl and her brother—and Until Sbornia Do Us Part, a vivacious, tango-driven, comic-fantasy about a romantic musician and a volcanic island that’s floating away from the mainland. The industry showcase offers a glimpse into Oregon’s powerhouse commercial studios, with TV clips, commercials, special effects, and music videos (think Portlandia & Grimm). Dig deeper into the world of indie animators with eight special topics: family friendly, strange/sexy, computer animation, abstract/psychedelic, films by women, Canadian Oscar winners, NW animators, and Oregon animation history. NW Animation Fest climaxes with a weekend-long marathon through the world’s best new short films, selected from 1400 international submissions. The festival includes after-parties, lobby installations, meeting the filmmakers, more. If you’re an animation-lover, this is the can’t-miss event for 2015. Hollywood Theatre May 4-10, tickets $8-15, festival passes $70.
