Encounters launch 2017 programme

Encounters launch 2017 programme and tickets are on sale now!

We’re delighted to announce the arrival of our 2017 Programme! You’ll find a heady mixture of amazing short film, animation, virtual reality, events, masterclasses, interactive and immersive experiences – and a host of activities and events still to come!

What to expect…

In live action, a mix of welcome returns and exciting discoveries, the filmmakers of the short film programmes once again surprised, challenged and inspired us with their bold propositions, talent and creativity.

Another lively storm of animation is also heading to Encounters. From Kaleidoscopic erotica and domestic delights, through forest and city, to heartbreaking romance and desperate thoughts, this year’s animation offering is as varied as it is spectacular!

Check out the Programme and pick your favourites.
