Only in Portland (literally, only in Portland) will you come across an Animation Festival that spans an entire week, screening over 250 films from filmmakers and from 64 countries. The Northwest Animation Festival touts itself as the “biggest animation festival in the U.S”. Who’s to argue with this lineup? The program, which you can find online, spans every genre, including a dedicated Family Friendly Night, along with International Shorts, Strange & Sexy Shorts and over a dozen more. I was there the first night and just about every seat was filled with an hour to go before the first film was to screen. You may see me there just about every night this week. If you’re a movie buff like me, or just love animation, this festival is a must.
