Here & Now Contemporary British Animation + Q&A, Until 7 August 2020 - Book now

Manchester Animation Festival presents a selection of contemporary British animated short films available to stream from now until 7 August. The selection — which represents something of a taster for the festival proper — is titled Here & Now and consists of nine shorts made in the UK between 2019 and 2020, and curated from a long list of films selected by ABAE (Alliance of British Animation Exhibitors) as the best in the country.

The collection is recommended for audiences aged 15-years and over, and is available on a pay-what-you-can basis. There’s quite a range on offer too, with more experimental sounding work joined by narratives that cover learning disability, relationships, and a mysterious-sounding ode to patios. Access to the films also gets you in to a live online Q&A with the filmmakers on Friday 31 July — but don’t worry if you miss it, you can catch up at any time until 7 August.
