Closing Gala: The Best of the Fest

London International Animation Festival 2018

LIAF 2018 - Jonathan Hodgson - Dogs

Selected by an industry-judging panel and audience votes, these are the best films of LIAF 2018.

The backbone of the whole LIAF mission. We’ve emerged from under the pile of 2,600 entries to put together a series of screenings that showcase the best 117 new films from every corner of the world. This is your annual window into the international indie animation universe.

The judges pondered them and argued out their choices. You saw them, you voted. The LIAF Director sometimes sneaks in one or two that got missed. This is the last chance to see these films before the curtain comes down on another LIAF.

Awards will be announced by the festival director and judges and award-winning directors welcomed to the stage to say a few words. Awards are given for the best film in each competition session, ‘Best British Film’, ‘Best Sound Design’ and the overall ‘Best of the Festival film’.
