Northwest Film Forum

This collection of mostly animated shorts celebrates friendships of all shapes and sizes. Whether it’s a mole and earthworm finding common ground, or a shy girl learning strength from her grandmother, these duos demonstrate that two are stronger than one.

Note to parents: My Dog’s Name is Wind takes place in the aftermath a boy’s loss of his pet. In The Little Stone Lion, a cat pounces on a cute mouse, off screen.
