Animation Now!

When it comes to animation, the only limit is a filmmaker’s imagination and we have a selection of treasures and oddities from some of the most brazenly creative minds around the globe. One collection comprises shorts that will charm and inspire, another offers the kinds of frightful weirdness live-action just can’t capture. Coming from some of the world’s most prestigious animation schools, these programmes offer a varied look at the contemporary landscape of animated art.

This programme is curated by Malcolm Turner, animation programmer at NZIFF since 1988, and director of the Melbourne International Animation Festival.
