Late Night Bizarre


Admission is restricted to 18+

IMPORTANT: Film classification regulations in Australia require
all films to either be formally classified OR restricted to an audience of 18 years of age and over. Most festivals do not have the resources to do this and it is for this reason alone that we are not able to admit any person under the age of 18 years to the main AIAF screenings.


The backbone of the annual AIAF mission!
A wee snapshot of the international animating scene.
 

On Time Off
Bill Porter

UK, 2008, 4'00
The slow broil of sunbathers blistering & warping in the heat on a nice day out to the beach.

Sparrows Are Children Of Pigeons
Nina Bisyarina
Russia, 2008, 5'00
Quintessentially classic Russian-style animation. A little boy's imagination embellishes the world around him.

The Conservatory
Matilda Tristram
UK, 2008, 2'00
A series of quick-fix solutions to problems of an emotional nature seen through the prism of immediate home renovation.
Boris
Daniel Lundqvuist
USA, 2008, 5'00
The town of Caply was a quiet and peaceful place until Boris was given a drum.
The Horrors: "She Is The New Thing"
Corin Hardy
UK, 2007, 2'45
A high-energy collage of live action and splattered ink drawing its momentum from horror flicks and severe anxiety.
Naturebreak: Roommates
Mike Hollingsworth
USA, 2008, 2'00
A clever – although ultimately lethal - solution to a conflict between thick-skinned housemates.
Stage Fright
Elina Minn
Finland, 2008, 2'00
A true performer must swallow their pride, as well as their weak, tiny, petrified self.
Out Of Focus
Ju-I Lin
South Korea, 2008, 3'00
All publicity is good publicity, if you play your cards right.
Twilight Circus
Pierre Migeot
France, 2007, 3'30
Beyond the shadows, behind the scenes and under the skin of a macabre circus.
Misundersatanding /
Le Mot Dit

Frederic Schaeffer
France, 2008, 4'00
Hey, most of the problems in the world are the result of basic misunderstandings.
Rabbit Punch
Kristian Andrews
UK, 2008, 5'30
A disturbing story about two young boys playing dangerous games. Evil begins at home and it takes root early.

Muto
Blu
Italy, 2007, 7'00
A life-size street animation that travels across the city, consuming, co-opting and mutating its environment as it goes.

Sound-Shadows
Julie Engaas
Norway, 2008, 7'45
The way the world sounds and feels to a person with a visual impairment. A film that drives home a rare insight with velvet glove force.
In Limbo
Michelle Ettlin
Switzerland, 2008, 3'45
A young man's concerned parents discuss his strange behaviour from every imaginable perspective.
Jazzed
Anton Setola
Belgium, 2007, 6'45
Jazz takes a moody city and turns it upside down and inside out then gives it back to us with beautiful, perfectly matched imagery.
The Heart Of Amos Klein
Michal Kranot, Uri Kranot
Isreal, 2008, 12'00
During heart surgery, Amos Klein's life - and the history of Israel - flashes before his eyes.
