For those of you who didn’t manage to get tickets for LIAF 2011 at the Barbican, we’re offering a second chance to see one of our International Programmes at The Aubin Cinema in Shoreditch. The Programme in question is International Programme 4, which as you’d expect features a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the international indie animation scene. Audiences voted ‘The Gloaming’ (NoBrain, France) as their favourite, whilst the LIAF 2011 judges chose ‘Battenberg’ (Stewart Comrie, UK).
Tickets are available to purchase from the venue box office. Visit The Aubin Cinema website here.
