Celtic Animation Film Festival

Sat 21 October @ 1:00 pm - 9:00 pm

£5.80

Our first festival-in-a-festival, the Celtic Animation Film Festival showcases animated films from those submitted to this year’s inaugural competition.

CAFc provides a platform for established animators of Celtic heritage and emerging Celtic animators from around the world. The fesitval celebrates storytelling relating to Celtic identity, myths, cultural history and personal stories from Celtic animators from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man, Brittany and Cornwall and those who have migrated around the world. CAFc also welcomes international animation submissions celebrating cultural diversity and identity from outside the Celtic regions.

At the time of writing, more than 250 international entries have been received. Resulting in an industry awards event, the aim is to encourage new and emerging Celtic and international animators to forge an ongoing global community to celebrate and share their practice, whilst telling or reflecting Celtic stories and concerns. Awards are to be given for Best Professional Short Film, Best International Short Film and Best Student Short Film, judged by panellists, including Matthew Gravelle (award winning animator and lecturer, University of South Wales) and Jared Taylor (Programme Director Animation, Director of Undergraduate Studies of the School of Design, Edinburgh College of Art) and festival directors Kate Corbin and Eleonora Asparuhova

The competition, day and venue have been organised by Kate Corbin and Eleonora Asparuhova, with support from and in partnership with the Liverpool Irish Festival.
