This programme examines some big life moments and asks some pointed questions. The 8 powerful films include the childhood memories of a filmmakers beloved uncle, a garbage man who collects unwanted objects to give to his family, a poignant tale of a lonely giant and a deeply heartfelt monologue on the nature of regret, redemption and the morality of capital punishment.

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 2,400 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.

Recommended age 15+

A spirited young woman persuades a hyena from London Zoo to take her place at a dinner dance. It probably won’t go well.
