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 to enter. Payment can be made via paypal to info@liaf.org.uk If you do not have a PayPal account, signing up is easy and you can do so here.

To be considered eligible for selection in LIAF 14, your film should have been completed AFTER 1 January 2012. The Festival Director reserves the right to grant exceptions to this criteria in exceptional circumstances.
