I am a Jury member at this years 10th London International Animation Festival. Official screenings started on the 26th Oct and will run until the 3rd Nov at the Barbican . I will be joined by Philip Ilson (Founder of The London Short Film Festival) and Tim O’Sullivan (Karrot Animation studios).
Founded in 2003, LIAF aims to dispel the popular misconception that animation is just cartoons for kids by screening the broadest possible range of intelligent, entertaining and provocative current films on offer from all around the world as well as retrospectives and specialised sessions from countries and animators who don’t normally elicit such attention.
Liaf annual 10-day Festival includes gala premieres, retrospectives, Q&A’s with filmmakers, workshops, audience voting, and the Best of the Festival screening. LIAF has grown to become much more than an annual Festival – we are programming more events, tours, screenings and masterclasses all year-round to as many cities and countries that invite us. LIAF strives to be the best, and we do so with a very small, very dedicated staff.
