Presented by the Chester Film Society in association with Storyhouse and the Institute for Social  Responsibility at Edge Hill University, and incorporating the Chester Animation Festival.

The Institute for Social Responsibility at Edge Hill University is proud to be associated with this, the 34th Chester International Film Festival. The diverse programme of films tackle a wide range of issues that resonate strongly with the ethos and goals of the institute; specifically, democracy and injustice (Rojo), women’s and LGBT rights (Permission and And then We Danced), political freedom (Balloon), the impact of corruption and warfare (Monos and The Whistlers) and the challenges of family life (The Farewell). We really hope that you enjoy this thought provoking programme.

We are delighted once again to present the Chester Animation Festival. This is an international competition from both amateur and professional animators to showcase their work. Launched in 2014, it has attracted hundreds of entries from all around the world, and has given talented animators the opportunity to present their creativity in all aspects of the genre, from traditional hand drawn work to the latest CGI generated films.

We will present the final selection back to back in one showing. The audience will then decide who will win the Audience prize for 2020.
(90 minutes)
