There are 280 animated films from 30 different countries being shown at this year’s festival, which is based at the Barbican Centre but extends to the Horse Hospital in Russell Square and the Rio Cinema in Dalston. There are some fantastic entries, showcasing

a range of different styles, and the fact the festival attracts films from throughout the world ensures some offerings are truly offbeat. Check out Bertie Crisp, the short story of a half-bear, half-panda who lives in a caravan park with his wife, Grace, who is a rabbit. Truly bizarre.

Until September 4. £11
