Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival 2012

Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival 2012

Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival is the umbrella festival for Animated Encounters and Brief Encounters which together presents one of the world’s best-known showcases and meeting points for new and established international short and animated film talent. The longest running competitive short film and animation festival in the UK, and one of Bristol’s leading cultural events, Encounters seeks to promote the importance of short film as a means to develop and progress the next generation of creative talent.

The 2012 festival will be held in Bristol, UK, between 18 to 23 September. Encounters is a qualifying UK festival for the BAFTAs, Cartoon d’Or, European Film Awards & Oscars®. The festival is funded by the British Film Institute, Bristol City Council, Creative England and the MEDIA Programme of the European Union. Encounters Festivals Ltd operates as an independent company and is a registered charity.

Now into its 18th season, the film festival will host high profile names from the film and animation industries, including internationally acclaimed documentary filmmaker Kim Longinotto, Academy Award winning independent producer Jeremy Thomas, director/animator Sam Fell. Encounters’ Artistic Director Mark Cosgrove said: “An important part of Encounters is the opportunity for young and emerging filmmakers to hear the hard earned experience and wisdom of established filmmaking figures and we are delighted to welcome to this year’s event a range of talent from live action and animation. In attracting such leading names to Bristol, the festival also continues to play a unique role in making the city a centre of excellence in the creative industries.”
