MORE ABOUT THE NORTHWEST ANIMATION FESTIVAL
The Northwest Animation Festival collects excellent short animated films from around the world for screening at an annual multi-day gathering in Portland, Oregon. Our goal: to create a large local community of impassioned enthusiasts and inspired artists, and an internationally recognized hub of animation culture.
We accept submissions from filmmakers of all nations, working in all variety of techniques, whether traditional or cutting-edge. No limits are set on when a project was completed, and makers are free to show their work simultaneously online or at other festivals. Simply put, we welcome any animated film: from anywhere, made whenever, shown wherever.
Our event is dedicated to the love of animation. Whether using paint, puppets, or pixels, there is a unique pleasure in making something inanimate to spring to life. By showcasing the very best creative efforts of our artistic community, we establish a magnet for the curious and an essential gathering place for committed animation fans. We hope to inspire practicing artists and artists-yet-to-be with a sprawling feast of cinematic delights — and in so doing, help the art form itself to grow and evolve.
