It may come, then, as little surprise that we also boast one of the world’s premier animation film festivals – Encounters. Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, Encounters is Europe’s leading short film festival, set in Bristol’s harbourside and offers a gateway to the likes of the BAFTAS, Oscars and European Film awards. As ever the festival will showcase six days of cutting edge programming, celebrating amazing short film and animation talent from all over the world. Through the organisation of stimulating and unique events, the festival seeks to promote the short form as a means to develop new creative talent. From masterclasses with major organisations to intimate talks with special guests such as actor Andy Serkis, animator Nick Park, and cinematographer Chris Ross who have all been guests at previous editions. 2020-red-on-white-numerics-NEWFull programme information, tickets and passes available by clicking here.
