Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Flip Animation Festival

Flip Animation Festival takes place at the Light House in Wolverhampton from today to Saturday. It is well worth a visit to see the breadth of the medium of animation and the talent out there.

The festival launch event Animation in the West Midlands: a snapshot takes place tonight at Millennium Point in Birmingham from 7-9pm. Flip will be discussing the current state of the West Midlands’ animation industry. How the sector can develop and expand at a time of recession. This event, co-hosted by Flip, Birmingham City University and Animation Forum West Midlands, seeks to find out.

It will include a screening of work from leading animation studios and individual filmmakers and a panel focussing on some of the achievements and highlights from the region. The panel will include Chris Randall from Second Home Productions, who pioneered an innovative replacement animation technique and Andy Guest from The CharacterShop, who are involved in a number of international co-production projects.

It is a great opportunity to find out more about animation in the region, and to join the debate about how to help the sector develop and expand.
