Curated by Northwest Film Forum

Join two mad scientists in their lab, trick some hungry dragons and dinosaurs, prepare lunch with a team of playful sushi rolls, and discover the beautiful music of friendship in this program of sweet and silly animated shorts, intended for very young viewers.

Note to parents: This program is full of lively stories and happy endings, though not all the plot lines are conflict-free. We encourage parents of especially sensitive kids to read the one-line film descriptions below to their little ones before the show, so everyone knows what to expect.
