ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The British Animation Film Festival 2014 is a proud supporter of animated films, student animations, world and independent animated films.

We aim to give you a great platform to screen your film, and great venues for your audience to watch them in.

We have excellent links with local press, universities, councils and will also post an on-line review of each film screened at the Festival.

Each film selected will be eligible for the audience awards. Both BAFF 2012 and BAFF 2013 were sold out events, and BAFF 2014 looks set to be even bigger and better than before!

All film-makers will receive one comp pass to the Festival.
