CARDIFF ANIMATION NIGHTS SUBMISSIONS OPEN! 

Cardiff Animation Nights (CAN) are free monthly screenings of great animation from around the world at The Underdog in the centre of Cardiff and online live on our YouTube channel. We screen some of the best animated short films from the global animation festival circuit, giving people in Cardiff a chance to watch independent animation on the big screen and meet like-minded people. ​

 

Cardiff Animation Nights has been running for 8 years, and has grown from our first event in the back of a small venue in Cardiff to just 20 people, to a monthly in-person and online event in Cardiff with over 120 people attending each month.

 

Cardiff Animation Nights is run by a team of animators and animation lovers in Cardiff, led by Ellys Donovan and Lauren Orme, with help and support from numerous individuals and organisations from the animation community in Cardiff and further afield.

For the first time we are opening submissions for Cardiff Animation Nights! Each month animated short films will be selected to be screened at the monthly Cardiff Animation Nights either online or in-person. In November 2023 a winning film will be selected by a jury of industry professionals. 

Cardiff Animation Nights has a rolling deadline. You will receive a notification if your film has been selected. If you haven't heard from us this means your film is still in the running to be featured! 

 

Cardiff Animation Nights is a separate event to Cardiff Animation Festival.
