Manchester Animation Festival (MAF) Animasyros Presents: Contemporary Greek Animated Classics

Manchester Animation Festival (MAF) is the UK’s largest Animation Festival and is dedicated to the celebration of the animated art form. Hosted in the Manchester Central Library and at HOME, the festival is the UK’s biggest animation hub, inviting people from Manchester and beyond to share in all things animated. A hybrid festival for 2021, MAF will take place from 14-30 November, in person and online. Passes are available to purchase here

We’re delighted to be shining the spotlight on Greece this year with the help of our friends Animasyros International Animation Festival who have gathered a selection of Greek speaking animated films that have stood out during the past 10 years of the Festival. Curated by Animasyros Festival Director Maria Anestopoulou, Contemporary Greek Animated Classics is sure to bring a little Greek sunshine to the rainy clouds of Manchester. More details on the films and information about Tickets for this event can be found on the MAF website.
