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.

A Silent Voice


Synopsis

The story begins with new student, Nishimiya Shoko, arriving at school. Several of her classmates are shocked to learn of her hearing impairment and, led by popular boy Ishida, take to bullying her. Nishimiya refuses to fight back and, despite her best efforts to appease the situation, it soon reaches breaking point. As a result of the fallout, Ishida’s classmates turn on him and he finds himself an outcast. Five years later, burdened by guilt and eager to make amends, Ishida tracks down Nishimiya and attempts to apologise for his actions. A Silent Voice is a sensitive film which tackles themes of disability, bullying and mental health in young people with compassion and understanding.

Scenes of emotional upset, occasional bloody images.
