Screen your animation at the Barbican

This sounds interesting, passing along:

IdeasTap, the online arts and funding organisation, are working with the Barbican Centre to offer six talented young animators the chance to get their short films screened at Watch Me Move: The Animation Show, a major new exhibition.

Watch Me Move kicks off at the Barbican Art Gallery, London, on 15 June and celebrates animation and its impact on culture over the past 150 years. Featured artists will include Étienne-Jules Marey, Harry Smith and Jan Švankmajer, as well as the output of major studios such as Walt Disney and Pixar.

IdeasTap are offering six animators aged between 16-25 the chance to screen their work as part of the festival. Films must be approximately five minutes in length, and PG- or 12-rated films will have the best chance of making it to the big screen.

If that wasn’t enough, the six shortlisted films will also be screened on where their readers will vote to pick an overall winner who will then be profiled on their website.
