______________________________

Abstract animation is the most imaginative of all artforms.

To succeed it relies on the most fundamental elements of what an animated film is – movement, shape, colour, rhythm, design and transformation. MIAF has championed this absorbing form of animating since the beginning and our annual Abstract Showcase brings the best, most expressive examples of the artform to the screen.
