The McLaren Award: New British Animation 1

Part of the Animation Strand


Inaugurated in 1990, one of the pillars of EIFF’s awards is the McLaren Award for Best British Animation, named after Scottish born animation pioneer Norman McLaren. The finest contemporary British Animators vie for your vote as the winning film is determined by you: the audience. In this first programme we present a highly anticipated Scottish short from the pen of acclaimed comic artist Frank Quitely, reflect on the current situation in Syria; as well as the existential crisis of a GIF, courtesy of BAFTA winner Will Anderson.
