Northwest Film Forum

Join us on a trip around the world with these animated films from seven countries, and delight in the many twists and turns along the way. You’ll meet a mix of loveable characters, including a slimy snail, a brave baby owl, a cat with a mind of its own, a totally fearless worm, and even kids who might remind you of yourself on your most incredible days.

This program includes films from the UK, USA, Germany, France, China, Taiwan, Hungry, and Argentina.

Watch all of this year’s films with a festival pass (starting at $30) or purchase tickets to individual film programs (starting at $5). Pricing is on a sliding scale, and we encourage you to pay what you are able—all ticket and pass sales go to support BAM Education, helping to ensure the future of BAM’s adventurous programming for families and students.

All events and workshops associated with the Festival are free and open to all.

World of Wonders is available for viewing starting February 20 and runs through February 28. Tickets will be available through Eventive, which requires customers to create an account before purchasing. All customers who purchase a ticket will receive an email confirmation with a link to the program; once the link is clicked, viewers have 48 hours to watch the program until it expires. Customers who purchase a ticket on February 27 or later will only be able to view the program until 11:59pm on February 28.
