Have you seen Shaun the Sheep yet?

If so, you may have noticed a small cameo appearance from Encounters Festival...

Here at Encounters we’re used to exhibiting animations but now it seems the table has turned and we’re the one’s featured on the big screen.  We were delighted when we spotted this lovely vintage Encounters Festival banner in a few scenes of this new feature!

Shaun the Sheep has been created by our sponsor Aardman Animations in our home town of Bristol and tells the tale of our much loved character deciding to take a day off then ending up running loose in the city. A series of mix-ups leads to an adventure and Shaun is left to help everyone find their way home to the farm.

The film has received a lot of positive attention and some great reviews since its release just under a week ago and it should definitely be on your list of films to see.
