Film buffs and cartoon lovers alike will be well up for heading to the London International Animation Festival – the largest of its kind in the UK. Taking place at the Barbican for the first time in its eight year history, there’ll be 250(!) beautifully crafted visuals to feast your eyes on from August 26th to September 4th.
Highlight include a range of contemporary and quirky films from New York and Poland as well as a chance to see 21 of the world’s best and most innovative music videos produced in the last 12 months.
And if you’re looking to try your hand at some activities, be sure to check out what’s on offer – the animation masterclass with Polish animator Wojtek Wawszcyzck looks particularly interesting – and you’ll even learn how to reanimate a scene from your favourite film!
There’s a great deal packed into just 10 days, so don’t miss this chance to enjoy the best in all things animation. (Words: Monique Todd)[stextbox id="custom"] Barbican, Silk St, City of London, United Kingdom EC2Y 8DS Tube: Barbican, Moorgate Further info: www.liaf.org.uk [/stextbox]
