LIAF 2014 Programme Online

// News


LIAF-2014-ident-for-webThe 14th London International Animation Festival will return later this month for ten days of screenings, workshops and industry events spread over Barbican Cinemas and The Horse Hospital.

This year’s uncompromising programme promises to inspire and delight – and also challenge the notion that animation is merely for the 3D-CG blockbuster genre. Indie 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, solely digital to some of the more interesting developments in 3D – all of which can be seen at this year’s LIAF.

Other international features to receive their UK debut screenings will be Bill Plympton’s Cheatin’, Ale Abreu’s The Boy and The World and Mait Laas’s Lisa Limone and Marc Orange.

Special events will include programmes focusing on Parisian animation, Estonian animation, abstract films, music videos, student shorts, documentaries and darker fare for older audiences, as well as workshops from Steven Woloshen, Andreas Hykade, Priit Tender and Ulo Pikkov.

@lewisheriz @skwigly That first time you see it move is such a buzz and then you add sound and it just enters a whole new stratosphere.

@themooks @skwigly I know it's kind of obvious, but I used to see it as 'important but secondary'. I don't see it as secondary any more.
