OPB and Northwest Film Center present a free screening of Oregon’s Animation Magic in advance of the TV premiere. At just about any moment in the Northwest, someone is making animation. Go behind the scenes with OPB’s Oregon Art Beat to meet the people who make Oregon one of the animation capitals of the world! The screening event will include a Q&A with OPB Producer Eric Slade and animation artists from the show. You’ll also have a chance to enter a random drawing to win passes to the 2017 Northwest Animation Festival.

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.
