LIAF 2021: More Films Announced!

LIAF 2021: More Films Announced! British Showcase, Late Night Bizarre, Best of the Next & Children’s Films

LIAF 2021 is on it’s way and fully hybrid! This year we’ll be at our at regular venues: the Barbican, The Horse Hospital and Close-Up plus at two new venues: Hackney Picturehouse and The Puppet Theatre Barge. Most of our programmes will also be available ONLINE, bringing the best animation, direct  to your homes.

In addition to the 8 international competition programmes announced last week, LIAF 2021 will also feature the British Showcase, two children’s and families programmes, The Best of the Next (student films) and Late Night Bizarre. All of these programmes are also competitive, will be judged by panels of animation experts and will all be up for a LIAF award.

LIAF is all about championing new filmmakers; some of the most risky and relevant work seen at our festival is by graduates and student filmmakers around the world. Our two Best of the Next screenings have been selected from showreels sent in by numerous film schools. These are the filmmakers of the future.

Likewise, we champion our home-grown talents and screen more British animation than any other festival worldwide. This years British Showcase is a great example of what our British filmmakers have been producing over the last 18 months. Triumph over adversity!

Another of our returning programmes is perennial favourite Late Night Bizarre. Buckle up and get ready for a wild ride. As ever, these are a bunch of the craziest films submitted this year.

And of course, we mustn’t forget the kids. For they truly ARE the potential future of animation. Let’s get them started early appreciating indie-animation by true artists with a singular vision from every corner of the planet. Even more line-ups to be announced soon, along with stills, synopses and trailers!
