Cardiff Animation Festival Full Schedule Revealed

The first iteration of the new Cardiff Animation Festival is fast approaching, and the full schedule has now been revealed. The festival will run from April 19-22 and is run by the fabulous folk behind the regular Cardiff Animation Nights screenings.

The previously revealed line-up includes screenings of The Breadwinner and Early Man, as well as several programs of shorts and behind-the-scenes looks at Chuck Steel: Night Of The Trampires and Hey Duggee. Freshly added are screenings of Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs, plus a talk on the film's production. There's also a program of Japanese animated shorts in partnership with Kotatsu Japanese Animation Festival. Early-bird passes are sold out, but festival passes and tickets for individual event are available from the festival website now.
