Formerly funded by the now-defunct Digital Central, the Animation Forum West Midlands has just secured another year of funding from Screen WM. This means that the Forum will be able to run at least ten more events before September 2010. These free talks and screenings are held at The Light House in Wolverhampton (very near the train station, and just a short journey on the train from Stoke-on-Trent), which enables them to take advantage of the full-size cinema screens there. Worth a visit! And if you’re an animator seeking to have your work shown locally on the big screen, make enquiries soon.
