2020 Call for entries 

The London International Animation Festival proudly showcases the whole spectrum of creative animation, showing that animation is for everyone.

Founded in 2003, LIAF aims to dispel the popular misconception that animation is just cartoons for kids by screening the broadest possible range of intelligent, entertaining and provocative current films on offer from all around the world as well as retrospectives and specialised sessions from countries and animators who don't normally elicit such attention.

There are awards for the Best Film of the Festival, the best British film, the best sound design, the best abstract film and the best children's films. They are all judged by juries made up of people from within the animation and film industry.

To be considered eligible for selection in LIAF 2020, your film should have been completed AFTER 1 January 2019. The Festival Director reserves the right to grant exceptions to this criteria in exceptional circumstances.

2018 Festival Coverage

This year LIAF received 2,589 entries and selected 117 finalists from 30 countries to screen in official competition in 10 international competitive programmes including Into The Dark scary shorts, From Absurd to Zany funny shorts, two programmes of Animated Documentaries, the British Showcase and the Abstract Showcase. Films range from the surreal and nutty, to heart-droppingly beautiful with all emotional bases covered – love and hate, sadness, anxiety and confusion and much more.

The 2018 short film competition showcases entries from a mix of festival veterans and first-time competitors. Oscar winners Alison Snowden and David Fine (Canada) join LIAF favourites Chris Shepherd (UK), Jonathan Hodgson (UK), Juan Pablo Zaramella (Argentina), Ulo Pikkov (Estonia), Tom Schroeder (USA), Liz Hobbs (UK), Sawako Kabuki (Japan), Rosto (Netherlands), Paul Bush (UK) and Ruth Lingford (UK) alongside an unprecedented amount of strong new work from all over the world.
