Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival is the longest running competitive short film and animation festival in the country and the UK’s leading gateway to the world’s most prestigious awards. The festival’s animation strand Animated Encounters offers the public and animation industry a rare opportunity to see some of the best short animated films from around the world. The festival seeks to promote the importance of short animation as a means to develop the next generation of animators, and to provide a platform for emerging talent to exchange ideas, form new collaborations and inspire new audiences.

Encounters is now the leading UK gateway to the world’s most prestigious animation awards: the Oscars, BAFTAs and Cartoon D’Or.
