We are so excited that animation is happening all across our planet! For LIFF31 we’re showcasing 30 animated shorts, half of which are UK premieres, from over 15 countries. However, each year one country in particular features more fantastic films than the rest. This year it’s the turn of Belgium, with six brilliant films scattered across all three programmes. Programme two alone brings you the gently bucolic A Fistful of Girolles by Julien Grande, the hirsute oddities of Jasmine Elsen’s Rascals and familial mealtime psychosis in Mathilde Remy’s comedy The Indigestion.

Ticket offers: the LIFF 2017 Pass is incredible value or see 6 films for the price of 5 (available by phone or in person only) - details here.
