LIAF’s annual collection of the hottest music videos from all over the world. Animation is an integral element in many of the best music videos. Producing them also provides a commercially viable way for animators to earn a living and produce work they can be proud of. Here are 20 of the world’s best and most innovative music videos produced in the last 12 months, providing a visual mash-up of styles, techniques and genres.
Music videos have surged in popularity since the rise of portable screens, and filmmakers are increasingly using them as an experimental form with which to test out their artistic ideas. After the screening join us as several of the filmmakers featured in this programme will take to the stage for a lively discussion on this subject. Panel members will be announced soon.
We will also be announcing the inaugural award for best music video at LIAF 2018 selected from the 20 films screened here.
