Fresh and innovative animation from around the British Isles.

A second helping of invigorating UK animation.

British animation unavoidably reflects British values; our love of pets is perfectly encapsulated in the latest adventures of Simon’s Cat, whilst our attitudes to sex gets some “doggie” perspective. Other British traits are referenced through a zombie orphan seeking affection, an aquatic creature winning the heart of a sea-witch, the temperamental climate, a celebration of Shakespeare, and our care for the elderly. All films compete for your vote to win the prestigious McLaren Award for Best British Animation. [15]

Amongst the animated jewels vying for your vote to be crowned the 27th McLaren Award Winner, we have prophetic characters delving into the future, an adaptation of a short story by Jack London, the tenderness of love inferred through potted plants, and the nature of reality torn apart in a way only animation can do. As with McLaren 1, this selection of short film represent the best animation talent working in the UK today. [15]
