CARDIFF ANIMATION NIGHTS
Cardiff Animation Nights are free bimonthly screenings of great animation from around the world. We’ve been running them since 2014 – they’re where it all began! We started with an audience of a couple of dozen people (mostly our mates), and now Cardiff Animation Nights has been running for eight years, has 150+ regular attendees, and has given birth to an international animation festival.
Join us as we take things back to our roots with this special CAF22 launch edition of Cardiff Animation Nights. We’re taking over Depot, a warehouse in central Cardiff, home to bring you more space, more Cardiff Animation Nights friends, and street food! Meet other animation fans, meet filmmakers, meet us! Then settle in for an hour of the good stuff.
