Animation at BFM International Film Festival 2001, London

Thursday 13 September 2001 19:00

The third Black Filmmaker International Film Festival, the largest UK event of its kind, is taking place 7—18 September.

The notion of black animation is the subject of two seminars at The Lux Centre on 12 and 13 September. Panellists plus film screenings will examine the aesthetics, forms, practices, paradoxes and cultural potential of work by animators from the black diaspora. Seminars will be lead by Lesley Adams, Senior Lecturer in Animation at SIAD, and panellists include animate!-makers Keith Piper and Run Wrake plus Dick Arnall, producer of the animate! scheme. The sessions conclude with a preview of Cardiff animator Tony Johnson’s hour-long Fallen Angel.

The BFM Festival offers a large number of premieres, including Spike Lee’s The Huey P. Newton Story, and the presentation of a Lifetime Achievement Award to Harry Belafonte. Full details from black filmmaker magazine.
