1976 was a splendid year for British animation. Great won the UK a first academy award for an animated short film, Cosgrove Hall began work here in Manchester and down in Bristol childhood friends returned home from university and decided to take their passion for animation seriously.

Peter Lord and David Sproxton had animating for fun in 1972 working from the kitchen table but 1976 was the year it all started with Morph and with Aardman Animations, a studio that would introduce the world to characters, directors and films that are quintessentially British and absolutely Aardman.

40 years on from that initial strip of film, the people who began the company join us for a special retrospective screening to take in the highlights of the studio that introduced the world to much loved adverts, features, short films and television shows. Aardman are now in their prime, this is the perfect chance to look back at what got them where they are today and meet the co-founders of the studio Peter Lord and David Sproxton.

Presented in association with Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival
