The McLaren Award: New British Animation 1

Part of the Animation Strand


We’re blessed every year at EIFF with a rich selection of British animation, from which we compile our programmes, as filmmakers from around our isles covet our prized McLaren Award. The winner is decided by you, the audience, and in this first selection of short films you’ll see a dazzling array of visual inventiveness. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll get angry about Brexit, but you’ll be glad you got a ticket.
