The London International Animation Festival returns to the Horse Hospital over 3 nights with 6 eclectic and inspiring screenings and talks with some of the most creative minds working in animation today.

Independent animation is very much alive and kicking and continues to thrive and develop with a breathtaking medley of styles, materials, techniques and genres. From hand drawn, paint on glass, collage and sculpture, to cut-outs, puppets, abstract and sand/salt – LIAF 2017 showcases all of this.


This ever-popular Late Night Bizarre programme is a bunch of anti-classics guaranteed to be as far away from Disney as its possible to get. A dirty fistful of 18 of the weirdest, wildest, most demented films hand-picked from the 2,600 entered.

Our Music Video Session is back and screens just before this one at 7pm. You can buy tickets for both screenings for just £12 + booking fee.

For both Music Video Session & Late Night Bizarre book tickets here.
