London International Animation Festival Marks 10th Anniversary

News Image
The London International Animation Festival (LIAF) returns to the Barbican for 10 days from 25 October to 3 November to celebrate its tenth anniversary.
Showcasing over 300 films from 30 countries, this year LIAF will cover the spectrum of creative animation in a series of programmes including animated features, competition shorts, masterclasses from visiting animators, screen talks, workshops and industry events.
The festival begins with a preview of Kevin Schrek's Persistence of Vision, about the visionary animator Richard Williams (Who Framed Roger Rabbit) and his quarter-century quest to make the greatest film ever.
The director will give a ScreenTalk following the screening with festival director Nag Vladermersky and animator Michael Schlingmann who spent many years working with Richard Williams on this unrealised project.
The competition programmes will form the core of the festival. As well as six programmes of the best new short films from all around the world there are also abstract, long shorts and the British showcase programmes.
Audiences will also be treated to a portfolio of work from French company Sacrebleu Productions and the 3D capabilities of the National Film Board of Canada and Poland's Platige Image Film Studio.
Multi award-winning Estonian animator Ülo Pikkov will present a retrospective screening of his work as well as give a masterclass focussing on his film Body Memory (2011), which has been selected for over 100 international film festivals and has won more than 30 prizes.
The festival will end with the Best-of-the-Festival on Sunday 3 Nov, featuring the best films chosen by our panel of judges and audience votes.
