Charlie Paul’s biopic of British artist Ralph Steadman is one of three feature films showing at this year’s edition, which runs Oct 25-Nov 4.
A special screening of Charlie Paul’s For No Good Reason [pictured] is to open the ninth London International Animation Festival (LIAF), which runs Oct 25-Nov 4 at The Barbican, the Horse Hospital and the Rio Cinema in London.
Paul’s biopic of British artist Ralph Steadman stars Johnny Depp and is one of three feature films showing at this year’s festival, with Keita Kurosaka’s sci-fi Midori-Ko and Tomas Lunak’s dark drama Alois Nebel also screening.
Lunak is one of four special international guests attending LIAF alongside Japanese filmmaker Koji Yamamura, in attendance for a retrospective and masterclass, Canadian artist, animator and documentary filmmaker Patrick Jenkins, who will host a flipbook animation workshop, and Lithuanian lecturer in animation Urte Budinaite who will also run the flipbook animation workshop.
The festival will hold ten competitive programmes featuring international animated shorts, including Jenkins’ Sorceress and Budinaite’s Independence Day, alongside two showcases focussing on Britain and Japan and a Klasky Csupo studios retrospective which will screen never-before-seen pilot episodes.
