LIAF 2020: Music Video Session + Screen Talk ONLINE

December 5, 2020
7:00 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 several 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.

We will also be announcing the award for Best Music Video at LIAF 2020 selected from the 20 films screened here as judged by our panel of industry specialists.

A livestreamed Screen Talk will follow the screening with filmmakers: Jonathan Hodgson, WOBBLYLOBSTER, Martina Scarpelli & Leah Shore.
