Closing Gala - The Best of the Fest (18*)

London International Animation Festival 2020

On-sale dates
Best of the Fest

In this most unusual of years we are very excited to be able to host a special in-cinema screening of the Best of the Fest

Our roundup of LIAF 2020 and the announcement of the best films as chosen by an industry-judging panel and you, the audience, with your votes.

Awards are announced by the festival director and judges and award-winning directors are  invited 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’, which will pick up the prize generously donated by the Elf Factory.

The judges have pondered long and hard over the 90+ films and argued over their choices. You saw them, you voted. This is the last chance to see these films before the curtain comes down on another LIAF, virtually and physically.

This screening always sells out, but even more likely this year with very limited spaces available, so grab your tickets early!
