London International Animation Festival

LIAF 2018

LIAF 2018

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

Founded in 2003, LIAF aims to dispel the popular misconception that animation is just cartoons for kids by screening the broadest possible range of intelligent, entertaining and provocative current films on offer from all around the world as well as retrospectives and specialised sessions from countries and animators who don't normally elicit such attention.

The annual 10-day festival includes gala premieres, retrospectives, Q&As with filmmakers, workshops, audience voting, and the Best of the Festival screening.
