Family Fun: ICE PRINCESS LILY
A fearless ice princess teams with a young fire dragon to stop an evil snowman and his army of polar bears from freezing over the entire planet. They will have to stick together, embarking on the biggest adventure of their lives.
Long time ago, there was two frontier magical kingdoms named Greenland, whose inhabitants live in an eternal summer, and Iceland, whose inhabitants live in an eternal winter. Protected by dragons, both kingdoms lived quiet and happy until the day that an evil wizard named Arktos killed all dragons but two, Tyrion and Mythia, that fled to arrive at the border of Greenland to save the egg of their unborn baby Tabaluga before Arktos finally killed them. But before dying, Mythia meets the old crow Kolk, who promises Mythia to care for the dragon and protect from Iceland and Arktos.
A few years later, Tabaluga is a young dragon unable to fly and spit fire, and mocked for it by the rest of the Greenland's animals. Always with his friend the male ladybug Bully at his side, one day Tabaluga and Bully find a message in a rock from his mother but the dragon misunderstands it due that it's partially covered. Entering in Iceland to find his fire, Tabaluga meets beauty ice princess Lilli and her friend the lighthearted polar bear Limbo. Not knowing what happened years before, Lilli takes Tabaluga to meet Arktos, now turned into Iceland's king. Pretending to be friendly, Arktos takes Tabaluga to a secret room in the belief that there he will find his fire, but when Arktos (a living snowman who wants to conquer Greeland to summit everything in an eternal winter) tries to finish the work and kill Tabaluga.
Lilli, Bully and Limbo join forces to save him, and finding a way to save Greenland before Arktos freezes it.

VHYes Portland Premiere
VHYes is a manic and heartfelt ode to 80s nostalgia, bittersweet emotions, and absurd Adult Swim homages all captured on videocassette.
Matt Donato, Flickering Myth
VHYEs is a strange yet sweet film that is one-part coming-of-age dramedy, one-part found-footage comedy, and one part channel surfing.
