Price £12.6

A comprehensive screening of the very best recently released British animation, including several world premieres.

Check the pulse of the British animation scene, meet many of the filmmakers and see the films that will take British animation to the world.

Nobody in the world screens more British animation than LIAF and this snapshot of the state of British animation paints a vibrant picture of a spirited and imaginative animation nation. Before the screening there is a chance to meet many of the animators, hear them talk about their films and ask them questions about their work.

This screening is a mix of several LIAF regulars whose films have screened at the festival over the years – Will Anderson, Anna Ginsburg, Phil Mulloy and Kate Jessop – alongside some of the most promising filmschool graduates and first-time filmmakers.
