Independent animation is an art form that continues to thrive and develop as a breathtaking medley of styles, materials, techniques and production – from hand drawn, paint on glass, collage, sculpture, cut outs, puppets, abstract to some of the more interesting developments in CGI – all of which can be seen at this year’s LIAF.

We’ve emerged from under the pile of 2,700 entries to put together a series of screenings that showcase the best 97 new films from every corner of the world. They can be funny, dramatic, bizarre, subdued, scary or autobiographical. The one thing they have in common is that we think they’re the pick of the crop.

Eight international competition programmes plus our ever-popular British Showcase. Every technique, every genre, every style – this is your annual window into the international indie animation universe.

The compelling films in this programme deal with some of life’s big questions and are, in turns, diverse, funny, moving and heartfelt. We are extremely thrilled to welcome back three of our most inventive filmmakers to LIAF – Tom Schroeder, Andreas Hykade and Dmitry Geller – with their new works. Three of the most powerful and visually stunning films in this years festival, reminding us that animation can do anything and take you anywhere. Be prepared to be transported to these other worlds.

A livestreamed Screen Talk will follow the screening with filmmakers: Tom Schroeder & Maja Gehrig.
