What goes through your mind when you are on the verge of dying? What happens when you stop trusting your intuition and you just get stuck? What happens when you are born with eyes so dense that it takes the light 7 years to travel through them and hit your retinas?

We are all looking for answers. Some of us are staring at the stars. A collection of diverse, funny, moving and heartfelt stories explored in this fascinating bunch of shorts.

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.
