Entering LIAF 2022


The London International Animation Festival is one of the largest animation festivals in the world. We usually screen around 300 films each year in competitive, student, curated and retrospective programmes. LIAF also generates a smaller touring programme around the UK. When you enter your film to LIAF it is automatically considered for the tour as well, although we will send you separate invitations if we wish to screen your film outside of the festival.

There is a small administrative fee of £10 per film (if entered by May 31) or £15 (if entered after June 1). Payment can be made via PayPal to If you do not have a PayPal account, signing up is easy via the Paypal website.

To be considered eligible for selection in LIAF 2022, your film should have been completed AFTER 1 January 2021. The Festival Director reserves the right to grant exceptions to this criteria in exceptional circumstances.

To be accepted for selection, your entry must arrive in a format that can be viewed by pre-selectors and the jury members. Please load your film to Vimeo or YouTube and provide a link and (if applicable) password - OR, send a VOB or MPEG file via WeTransfer or DropBox.

Pre-selection decisions regarding all entries are made by the Festival Director, relevant advisors and a pre-selection committee. The selection process will be made by October 2022. All selected films will receive a formal invitation from the Festival Director. All unsuccessful films will receive notification via email.

The screening order of each programme and the programme in which each film is screened will be at the sole discretion of the Festival Director. All submission materials will be retained by LIAF for use in our archive – for reference in programming other screenings and events.
