A screening of the best independent animations from across the globe, selected from the Melbourne International Animation Festival (MIAF).

MIAF Director Malcolm Turner will introduce this screening of an hour of short films followed by a twenty minute creation by renowned Croation film studio, Zagreb Film.

Animation is an incredible medium that combines the disciplines of film making, visual art, music and storytelling to create powerful, engaging worlds that carry meaningful messages. It is not just for kids and I hope this selection of films shows just how rich, intelligent and mature animation can be. 

With the increasing popularity and power of virtual and augmented reality, the skills of an animator are in ever higher demand. Already the majority of mainstream films and TV we see today rely heavily on animated effects. The hugely successful TV series, Game Of Thrones, just became the biggest Emmy Award winner of all time - many of these gained for its stunning use of animated visual effects. This program explores the flipside of these mega-budget endeavours and looks instead at the world of independent animation which utilises the same concepts and skills as these large scale studio productions.
