Lighthouse’s Cineville and Open Book present: An Animated Euro-Vision
6.30pm – Doors & Bar
7.30pm – Start of Event
Limited funding and high production costs in the UK often make international co-productions a financial necessity for UK animation producers. But while co-production undoubtedly has much to do with sharing of risk and investment, the pooling of resources and meeting of creative minds can have exciting implications for content, style and technique that are far-reaching and ever evolving.
Industry experts and filmmakers from the UK and abroad will discuss the challenges and benefits of animation co-production, taking a look at how British writers, producers and directors are working with international partners, the reasons why and the results of these collaborations. A selection of short animation films and clips will also be screened during the discussion.
This event has been enabled by Screen South and the RIFE lottery funding programme
