The 6th Flip Animation Festival takes place at the beginning of November in Wolverhampton and across venues throughout the West Midlands. This year promises even more treats than previous with films, speakers and special events in abundance.
For anyone interested in animation and film – from professional to amateur to general interest – Flip offers screening of over 50 films from award winning producers in the field. As well as the heavy hitters there is a distinct focus on the regional scene with shorts from new and established names.
For the curious Flip host a selection of workshops around scriptwriting for animation and an animation challenge for those of you who want to get more involved in the making rather than the watching.
A highlight to look out for is the specially curated sessions from the BAFTA nominated Brothers McLeod which includes some unmissable gems and classics, including the Moomins, Feed the Kitty and the Russian version of Winnie the Poo – Vinni Puh.
As well as this there will be competitions, portfolio review sessions, animation and education panels, and much more. Visit www.flipfestival.co.uk for more information and a detailed programme of events and venues.
