What goes through your mind when you are stuck in the city, on the cusp of adulthood, feeling charged with desire and anger? How do you come to terms with the notion of being a slave to work - do you just drop out of society altogether? What happens when you want to speak but physically can’t? We are all looking for answers. Some of us are staring at the stars. This is a collection of questioning, 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 breath-taking 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 86 new films from 41 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.

Feeling lost in his day-to-day existence, Red has trouble making a decision that could potentially change his life.
