DIRECTOR: JOHN AND FAITH HUBLEY
The husband-and-wife team of John and Faith Hubley brought a humanistic perspective and a distinctly modern style to postwar American animation. The films they made together, and independently, influenced a generation of independent animators worldwide and earned many honors, including three Academy Awards. Selected in collaboration with the Hubley family (daughter Emily is also a distinguished animator) to honor John Hubley’s (1914-1977) centennial, the sparkling new 35mm prints of these innovative, visually striking classics (a handful among dozens of brilliant films)—THE ADVENTURES OF AN * (1957), THE TENDER GAME (1958), MOONBIRD (1959), THE HAT (1964), URBANISSIMO (1967), WINDY DAY (1968), OF MEN AND DEMONS (1969), and EGGS (1971)—address a wide range of topics, from urbanization and overpopulation to two boys’ search for a pet bird, and feature the voices of Dizzy Gillespie, Dudley Moore, and the Hubleys’ children, as well as music from Benny Carter, Ella Fitzgerald, and Quincy Jones. (80 mins.)
Faith Hubley’s classic animated feature THE COSMIC EYE screens May 11.
The NW Film Center is playing several Studio Ghibli classics throughout the month of March! Some showings have come and gone already but there are still many more! Be sure to experience these films on the big screen before they’re gone. Hope to see you there!

NW Animation Fest presents twelve of this year’s best animated shorts from around the world! Here’s some of what you’ll see…
An eccentric thief eats the paintings that he’s stealing from museums and is transformed into fantastical creatures. A wolf hunter rescues a wild boy who grew up alone in the forest, but can’t save him from civilized society. Excited by the rhythms of traffic, the driver of a trolley bus entertains whimsical erotic fantasies about her male passengers. Threatened by a volcano, two bumbling cavemen seek assistance from a fabled tyrannosaur practicing the skills of trigonometry and long division—the mighty Pythagasaurus.
This spring, NW Animation Fest hosted the largest showcase of short animations in the USA: over 150 films. Audience members helped create “Best of the Fest” by voting for their personal favorites. Special award winners will be announced on Sept 7. One night only!
Mature themes: playful sexuality, urban squalor, drug use
