London International Animation Festival

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.

Our annual 10-day Festival in August and September includes gala premieres, retrospectives, Q&A’s with filmmakers, workshops, audience voting, and the Best of the Festival screening. Since this year LIAF has become much more than an annual Festival – we are programming more events, tours, screenings and masterclasses all year-round to as many cities and countries that invite us. LIAF strives to be the best, and we do so with a very small, very dedicated staff.

If you are passionate about the richly nuanced cultural experiences which the Festival so consistently provides, please consider becoming a LIAF MemberBenefactor or Partner to help us to run the best Animation Festival in the UK.


Gundam in Shizuoka

Io non sono appassionato di Anime o Manga anche se devo dire che alcuni cartoni animati mi ricordano i momenti spensierati della mia infanzia. Ho trovato su YouTube questo video che trovo interessante in quanto celebra il robot Gundam ad altezza naturale e che fino fino a poco tempo fa’ era in esposizione ad Odaiba. La cosa piu’ interessante sembra essere il commento scritto da un certo darwinfish105 che dice ‘Questa e’ l’ottava meraviglia del mondo’. A voi le conclusioni.

I’m not a fan of Anime or Manga, even if, some cartoons have the power of recalling some happy memories of my childhood. I found on YouTube this interesting video that celebrates the robot Gundam which until few months ago was erected in Odaiba. The most interesting thing, however, is the comment written by darwinfish105 who states ‘This is the 8th wonder of the word’. Feel free to write your own comments.
