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 and now Cardiff Animation Nights has been running for ten years, has 150+ regular attendees, and has given birth to an international animation festival. 


Our special festival launch of Cardiff Animation Nights will be held at the beloved Underdog on Thursday 25th April. In our CAF24 Decadent Desserts Edition, we’ve got all the typical animation madness and mayhem you’ve grown to love and enjoy for all these years.


Come and partake in an appetising selection of international shorts that will get you pumped for 4-days of festival feasting. But the party doesn’t end when the films are over, spend the rest of the evening with fellow animation lovers, filmmakers, and the CAF staff as we celebrate yet another milestone.
