The brand new Cardiff Animation Festival is launching in April 2018 at Chapter, Cardiff. The four-day celebration of animated film will include a preview of Oscar-nominated feature film The Breadwinner, a special masterclass with the creators of pre-school favourite Hey Duggee, and a huge programme of 99 short animated films in competition!

We’ll also be screening a fantastic selection of British-produced animated feature films, including Aardman Animations Early Man with Animation Director Merlin Crossingham from the studio giving insight into the film’s creation!

CAF will celebrate Chuck Steel: Night Of The Trampires, the independent stop motion feature film everyone is talking about, made in a warehouse in Bridgend by Animortal Studio. Director Mike Mort will give CAF audiences an exclusive look behind the scenes of the film. The festival will also play host to the Trampires themselves, who are set to take over Chapter with their very own four-day exhibition – a chance to get face to face with the incredible puppets from the film, the amazingly detailed miniature streets of LA, and meet the hero himself, Chuck Steel.

Budding directors and creators will have the chance to partake in one-to-ones with Children’s TV Commissioners as part of the Industry Day, opening the festival on Thursday 19th April. Don’t forget your business cards!

Cardiff Animation Festival 2018 will run from Thursday 19th to Sunday 22nd April at Chapter, an independent arts hub and cinema space in the heart of Cardiff, as well as other Cardiff venues.
