Edge of Frame presents two programmes exploring acclaimed artist, filmmaker and animator Robert Breer’s substantial legacy.

We are very excited to welcome back Edge of Frame to LIAF for the fifth year running with two programmes of work at the intersection of animation, experimental film and artists’ moving image. Specially curated by Edwin Rostron - the London-based artist, animator, writer, curator, editor of Edge of Frame blog and festival juror - these programmes celebrate this incredibly rich and vibrant, yet often marginalised and hard to define art form.

After Images presents a range of work by contemporary animation artists who have built on Breer’s myriad formal and conceptual innovations, taking his lead into unexpected new directions, including Micah Weber, Elizabeth Hobbs and Karen Yasinsky. This programme shows the acute relevance Breer’s work continues to have for artists working with animation in an uncertain and unpredictable world.

After the screening, in a pre-recorded Screentalk, Edwin Rostron talks to animators Elizabeth Hobbs and Stuart Hilton about the work of Robert Breer and the effect it has had on their practices.
