London Animation Festival showcases Brazilian short film


The London International Animation Festival (LIAF), which will take place this December in the English capital, will feature an animated short film from Brazil among its participants.

Founded in 2003, the LIAF aims to unravel the preconceived notion that animated films are only for children. By putting on showings of intelligent, provocative and exciting films, created in the most diverse corners of the globe, the festival gives public recognition to new and talented artists.

Among this year’s nominees is the animation “A short history of skateboarding”, a colourful and dynamic 5-minute film directed by the Brazilian Antônio Vicentini, with art direction by David Galasse.

Persuasive, illustrated and capable of showing abstract details in an attractive way, the animation tells the tale of the invention and consolidation of this now global sport.

In addition to this short film, another 13 from different countries will be showcased during the same afternoon.
