London International Animation Festival (LIAF) proudly showcases the whole spectrum of creative animation, showing that animation is for everyone. These 12 films are a fantastic snapshot of the type of work being produced by animators from all around the world and proving that animation can be the most entertaining, intelligent and provocative artforms. Here you’ll find comedy, horror, animated documentaries, abstract works and everything in-between.

Our monthly Short Film City Hull programme showcases the best of short films from around the world. We know that short film is not always the first thing that comes to mind for a night out so to encourage you to give this under appreciated format a try we run these nights on a pay-what-you-want basis. The recommended price is £4 but you can choose whatever you feel is right.
7:00pm: Doors open. Why not grab a drink from Fruit’s bar and settle in for the film? Fruit has a selection of over 50 beers, including world lagers, ales, bitters, stouts and ciders as well as a range of craft, trappist, abbey and wheat beers. They also offer wines, hand pulled ales, tea & coffee, spirits and bar snacks.
7.30pm: Programme starts. There will be at least one interval.
9.15pm: Programme ends. Post-screening we’ll be having a drink in the bar and would love for you to join us and chat about the films.
The programme run time includes an allowance for introductions and trailers. This may vary and in some cases the film will begin immediately after a short introduction. While we will endeavour to accommodate latecomers, this may not always be possible. Please note that we reserve the right to refuse entry, without a refund, to anyone arriving after the advertised programme start time.
