We would like to encourage animation PhD students, supervisors and those considering undertaking post graduate research in animation to attend, so if you know anyone who would find this useful please do pass on the details.That day marks the start of the Flip animation festival and we’ve arranged the day so that you can go on to attend a special guest screening, Q&A and animation quiz in the evening if you’d like to stay on (there will be a separate cost for this at a reduced rate for our attendees). There will also be a dinner before the Flip festival kicks off, at a cost per head of approximately £19 each. Please let me know if you would like to book a seat for this. We hope to see you in Wolverhampton in November!”

Animadoc programmes at Tricky Women 2011

Another tip-off from Annegret Richter at the brilliant DOK Leipzig festival. Here are two programmes of animadoc films by female film-makers which she curated for the Tricky Women festival in Vienna, Austria last year.

DOCartoon festival, Pietrasanta, Italy

Launched last year, DOCartoon is ‘the first festival in the world to be primarily dedicated to animated documentaries and non-fiction comics’. A mix of short and feature-length animadoc films, meetings and exhibitions takes place in an ancient city of Tuscany. Sounds like fun!

There’s a Call for Entries on the home page for the this year’s event, to be held in October. Check it out:
