A feature-length selection of short live action and animated films from the EE British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA). 

 

The screening includes a Q&A with Marcus Armitage (My Dad). Armitage is an animator and director from West Yorkshire, who now lives in London. He has an MA in animation from the Royal College of Art. Marcus uses drawing, painting and mixed media to create films about change in modern British culture. He creates his stories through contrast, overlaying narratives that switch between past, present and future and using colour from black and white charcoal to vibrant oil pastels and paint.
