Celtic Animation Film Festival and Irish Dancing
In 2017, the Liverpool Irish Festival launched the inaugural Celtic Animation Film Festival (CAFF), organised by curators and animation experts Kate Corbin and Eleanora Asparuhova. For the Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta, the Celtic Animation Film Festival returns with a family friendly programme, between 3.30pm ad 6pm on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 May at the Martin Luther King Jnr Building.
Serving as a competition platform for aspiring artists the Celtic Animation Film Competition (CAFc) leads directly to the Celtic Animation Film Festival. The competition calls for work – and particularly story telling – relating to Celtic identity, myths, cultural history and personal stories from Celtic animators from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man, Brittany and Cornwall and those who have migrated around the world. CAFc also welcomes international animation submissions celebrating cultural diversity and identity from outside the Celtic regions.
This is an opportunity to witness stunning films that highlight the zeitgeist of Celtic minds, activity and identity.
On Saturday at the Martin Luther King Jnr Building, there is a great line up for you, with…
- 12pm-3pm – The George Fergusson Dance School will demonstrate their exquisite Irish dancing insets of approximately 20 minutes
- 3.30pm-6pm – the Celtic Animation Film Festival will show family friendly short films first previewed at last year’s Liverpool irish Festival. These beautiful films tell varying stories from Celtic preoccupations, today’s zeitgeist and folkloric pasts.
On Sunday, again at the Martin Luther King Jnr Building, there will be…
- 12pm-3pm – The Bolger-Cunningham Dance School dancing a rolling programme
- 3.30pm-6pm – the Celtic Animation Film Festival returns with another selection of short films, suitable for all the family.
