New Animator 2005

Out of almost 300 animations covering a wide variety of themes and animation styles the judges produced a shortlist of twelve in the 2005 awards.

** Please note the asterisked films contain strong adult themes and language which some may find offensive and unsuitable for children. They will only be available post watershed (21.00) until 05.00. Some other films have been modified with the film makers blessing to make them suitable for daytime viewing.
