Northwest Film Forum

Enter a beautifully animated wonderland of timeless tales, fables, and fantastic yarns. You’ll meet a kitten who masters the briny deep, creatures who live in a world made of wool, insects maneuvering the cycle of life, a jungle where animals and humans coexist in peace, a place in the woods where friendly monsters live, and a cyclist who keeps the world spinning round.

This program includes films from Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary, Argentina, Poland, Russia, Sweden, and US.
