Best Of London Animation Festival in Sheffield
Best Of London Animation Festival
Regather Works, Sheffield
Thursday 25th January 2018
We don't live in London. Often thats for good reason, however sometimes they do have some great cultural highlights, which can be a pain to miss out on.
This is one such example - an animation festival of the best animated films of the year from around the world! Fortunately we've managed to tempt an organiser up with a collection of picks from the festival!!!!
The London International Animation Festival(LIAF) is the UK's largest and most eclectic animation festival with an annual programme that promises to inspire, delight and challenge the notion that animation is merely for the 3D-CGI blockbuster genre or cute cartoons for kids. Independent animation is an artform 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, sand/salt, to some of the more interesting developments in CGI - all of which can be seen at this year's LIAF.
This selection of films from the most recent festival in December 2017 is a snapshot of the award-winners and audience favourites - 12 short films from 12 of the world's most imaginative minds.
For more information about The London International Animation Festival please visit the website at www.liaf.org.uk.
The screening will be introduced by the LIAF Director Nag Vladermersky.
