LIAF 2018: Music Video Session with post-screening panel discussion + Q&A

December 8, 2018
7:30 pm

LIAF’s annual collection of the hottest music videos from all over the world. Animation is an integral element in many of the best music videos. Producing them also provides a commercially viable way for animators to earn a living and produce work they can be proud of. Here are 20 of the world’s best and most innovative music videos produced in the last 12 months, providing a visual mash-up of styles, techniques and genres.

Music videos have surged in popularity since the rise of portable screens, and filmmakers are increasingly using them as an experimental form with which to test out their artistic ideas. After the screening join us as several of the filmmakers featured in this programme will take to the stage for a lively discussion on this subject. Our three panellists are: Robert Strange Everybody Wants to be Famous, Katy Wang Ma Mama and Joseph Wallace Edith Piaf (Said It Better Than Me).

We will also be announcing the inaugural award for Best Music Video at LIAF 2018 selected from the 20 films screened here.

Our ever popular programme Late Night Bizarre screens just after this one at 21:00. You can buy tickets for both screenings for just £12 + booking fee.
