Shorts: McLaren Animation 1

Part of the Animation Strand


Inaugurated in 1990 in honour of Norman McLaren, the renowned Scottish-born animator and pioneer, the McLaren Awards celebrate the spirit of creativity in short form works. Across the two McLaren Animation programmes, you will be treated to a selection of animated gems by established and emerging talent based in the UK and Ireland. Programme 1 is a mix of experimental, documentary and narrative works that bring tales of romance, folklore, terror and Christmas to the big screen. [12A] Abigail Addison
