We’ve emerged from under the pile of 2,400 entries to put together a series of screenings that showcase the best 87 new films from 30 countries around 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. 8 international competition programmes. Every technique, every genre, every style - this is your annual window into the international indie animation universe.


This programme is our annual survey of abstract and experimental animation. Animators working in this field employ every technique from hand-drawn ‘musical scores’ all the way across the scale to high definition, computer assisted image making. These 16 short films share a pure love of animated movement and an artist’s eye for filling the screen, harnessing colour and creating non-narrative imagery.


Recommended age 15+

Playful and wonky, a physical dance with darkness and light.
