All four artists work with animation in their practice and are going beyond the single screen to create immersive worlds, integrated with performance. There will be a Q&A led by Animate Projects producer Abigail Addison, where you will have the opportunity to ask questions of the speakers.
Female Figures was devised in 2017, born from a desire to present an alternate view of women’s bodies and women’s stories. In recognition of the under-representation of female animators within the independent animation sector, the programme spotlights some of the incredible work crafted by contemporary animators, both in the UK and internationally.
In association with London International Animation Festival.
Female Figures is the first in the Accelerate Sessions series of online conversations with artist animators, running across Summer/Autumn 2020, with guest programmers Edwin Rostron (Edge of Frame), Alys Hawkins and Ellie Land (Animated Documentary), and Adam Pugh.
