Cardiff Animation Nights is back on Thursday 30th August! We’re bringing some of our favourite animated short films from the world’s biggest animation festival, Festival international du film d’animation d’Annecy, to Kongs Cardiff!
It’s free and open to everyone, whether you’re a cartoon fan, an animator, or you just want to check out something new.
We’re screening some of the world’s best new independent animated short films this month, including:
A LOVE LETTER TO THE ONE I MADE UP
Rachel Gutgarts’ wonderful screen-printed film about love, loneliness and fantasy has been picking up awards from festivals all over the world and won the first Vimeo Staff Pick Award.
“We’ve never seen a short like this before.” – No Film School
Sam Gainsborough’s NFTS short lets us into the minds of live-action characters through expressively animated claymation faces.
“As Sean anxiously awaits a meeting in the pub, he is forced to explore his own unhappy memories and relationships in an evening that will leave him changed forever.”
BETWEEN US TWO
Through paint on photocopied frames, Singaporean director Tan Wei Keong’s moving documentary short explores identity and loss.
“A gay son talks to his dead mother.”
A TABLE GAME
Weird and funny 2D short from Estonian director Nicolás Petelski.
“Patience is a virtue.”
AND MUCH MORE…
In the Level 2 space at Kongs Cardiff, opposite Cardiff Market on St Mary Street. Doors 7:30pm, films from 8pm. Free entry! Come for the films, stay for a drink and meet other animation fans.
