This year marks the 4oth anniversary of Leeds Animation Workshop, a women’s co-operative which produces and distributes animated films and films on social and educational issues. There are several celebratory events taking place, including two on women and animation:
- Women’s Animation from Near and Far: a programme of films including national and international award-winners never before seen in this country, alongside some made in Leeds. Plus a panel of speakers.
Tuesday 25 September, 6.30pm at Hyde Park Picture House, Leeds (usual cinema ticket prices)
- Women Animators on the Edge: a programme of films you wouldn’t usually see in a cinema – new, raw, political, poetic. With speaker Louise Shelley and Q&A.
Thursday 27 September, 6.30pm at 42 New Briggate, Leeds. Free, but space limited and booking may be necessary – phone LAW on 0113 248 4997 to check.
