Shy but plucky runt piglet Babe doesn’t quite seem to know his place in the world. When he’s won by farmer Hoggett at the county fair, he is adopted by a barnyard border collie and discovers he can be anything he wants to be—even an award-winning sheepdog! Surrounded by a colorful cast of farm friends, Babe fights to avoid the destiny of most pigs through sheer invention. Winner of an Academy Award for Special Effects and Golden Globe for Best Comedy or Musical, Babe’s heroic adventure delights viewers of all ages with gorgeous settings and whimsical performances—an inventive film for the whole family.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
