A special programme of this year’s animate! tv commissions. animate! challenges artists to transcend the ordinary and re-vision the world with unexpected tools, to refresh their eyes and minds - and ours too. The project believes passionately in spirited, radical content, and in film-based work as well as digital process.

Six exciting, diverse new works take startling journeys, reveal unsettling undercurrents and discover dazzling personal domains. See them here before they premiere on Channel 4 in the second half of November.

From Nose to Mouth by Joji Koyama, Interstellar Stella by AL + AL, Proximity by Inger Lise Hansen, Purple Grey by Sebastian Buerkner, We Believe in Happy Endings by Monika Forsberg & Susie Sparrow and Yours Truly by Osbert Parker.

  1. Robert Ford Says:

    How do I find out about the animation festivals and submission dates in the UK?

  2. Dick Arnall Says:

    If you mean UK festivals exclusively dedicated to animation, and if you add Animex and Animated Exeter, both in February, to the three festivals mentioned above, then that’s pretty much all that we know about. You will have to check individual websites for submission dates.

    Perhaps other visitors can add to this list…

    There’s a very good Directory of International Film and Video Festivals at run by the British Council. This includes UK film festivals which accept animation in their broader selection.

    Good luck!
