In recognition of International Women's Day in March 2018 and in support of Anim18 (the BFI FAN celebration of British Animation, led by Chapter and Film Hub Wales) Into Film's Spring Screenings programme is all about British and International Women in Animation. Highlighting a variety of career opportunities such as VFX supervisor, Puppeteer, Producer and Director within the animation industry, and through the careers of the women that have made these films, we hope to inspire young women and young men aged between 16 and 19 to think about following their own paths into the world of animation.

Film title

Animal Farm


A faithful retelling of the classic story by novelist George Orwell. At first, the story may seem innocent enough and the colourful cast of talking farm animals cute - but look closer, and there's a dark and powerful tale being told here. When a group of farm animals run the evil farm owner off his land, everything seems like it's soon going to be perfect in this fair and just new world. But soon the pigs start warring amongst themselves, forcing the animals to choose sides...


John Halas, Joy Batchelor
