LIAF presents two and a half hours worth of the wildest and most innovative films submitted this year in two programmes - the Music Video programme and Late Night Bizarre.
Kicking off at 7:30, LIAF presents the 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.
After a short break we'll proceed with Part 2 - Late Night Bizarre - LIAF's annual walk on the wild side featuring the most twisted films to emerge this year. We dug deep to find the best and this is what you find when you go down that far. This ever-popular Late Night Bizarre programme is a bunch of anti-classics guaranteed to be as far away from Disney as it's possible to get. A dirty fistful of 12 of the weirdest, wildest, most demented films hand-picked from the 2,600 entered.

Vive Le Punk (1993) Dir: Roger K. Burton duration 60mins
Please join us for a rare screening of Vive Le Punk, an exclusive documentary featuring Malcolm McLaren & Vivienne Westwood talking in depth about their extraordinary collaboration together, the evolution of their Kings Road shops and those groundbreaking punk designs that took the fashion world by storm between 1971 and 1980. The couple were captured on film at the Horse Hospital on the eve of our very first exhibition, Vive Le Punk.
We believe this is the only known footage of the them talking together about that time.
The film will be screened in the presence of punk icon Jordan, who will join Cathi Unsworth co-author of Defying Gravity Jordan's Story, and Roger K. Burton for a special Q&A after the film.
