On July 11th Bristol Cube will screen the final in the BEEF organised Go go go: Women in Experimental Animation series. There's a line up of great films, plus guest speaker Caroline Ruddell, co editor of 'The Crafty Animator: Handmade Craft-based Animation and Cultural Value', will introduce the screening!

The films within this programme deploy modes of humour, irony, absurdity, the grotesque, mystery, beauty and defiance where qualities of shape, colour, texture, light, materiality and movement and questions of process itself are given priority.

Audiences will experience a wealth of unexpected insights, imagery and unusual perspectives taking place alongside a wide range of different media including the use of stop motion, animated body fluids, pixilation, drawing, found footage, photo-collage,textiles, painting, frame-by- frame and frameless, handmade, direct film and performance.

This programme is curated by BEEF member Vicky Smith with input from Marcy Saude and Sam Francis and made possible by the support of Arts Council England.
