World Animation Competition: Programme 1
4 Nov 2020 - 30 Nov 2020
We pick the most outstanding animated short films from a diverse selection, for our ever popular World Animation Competition. In this programme, climate change refugees encounter tigers, in a dystopian vision of Kolkata, while Stephen Irwin explores his dark side with Wood Child & Hidden Forest Mother. Every year one country in particular sends us more fantastic films than the rest and this year it’s France, with six brilliant films scattered across the three programmes, such as Adrien Merigeau’s award-winning Genius Loci, a hallucinogenic walk through a city at night.
Showing online on Leeds Film Player from 3 November. Visit leedsfilm.com for more information.
