Animators in Britain post-2000 have adapted rapidly to shrinking funds, changing technologies and new distribution models. This programme highlights some recent animated acquisitions of the BFI National Archive; from modern takes on traditional forms in the stop-motion horror of Rob Morgan, to the delightful digital disorder of viral superstar Cyriak. Expect BAFTA-winning student shorts, Animate! classics and a couple of eclectic surprises.
