GUEST FESTIVAL: THE LONDON INTERNATIONAL ANIMATION FESTIVAL (LIAF)

The London International Animation Festival (LIAF) proudly showcases the whole spectrum of creative animation, showing that animation is for everyone.

Now in its 14th year the 2016 festival thrilled larger than ever audiences with an uncompromising programme challenging the notion that animation is merely for the 3D-CG blockbuster genre. Independent animation is an art form 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, to some of the more interesting developments in CGI - all of which were seen in abundance at this year’s LIAF.

These 11 films – “the Best of LIAF” are a fantastic snapshot of the type of work being produced by animators from all around the world, proving that animation is the most entertaining, intelligent and provocative art form there is. Here you’ll find comedy, horror, animated documentaries, abstract works and everything in-between.
