Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the restrictions to indoor events as a result of the Omicron variant, and the desire to prioritise the safety and comfort of our audiences and artists above all else, we will no longer present the live screening of this event at Summerhall, however the online event will proceed as planned.

Celebrating extraordinary and award-winning female and non-binary animators from around the globe, MANIPULATE is delighted to present Animated Womxn for the second year running. The programme features work employing a wide range of techniques, textures and styles and includes some of the most decorated shorts in this year’s festival season.

This programming strand was initiated in 2020 and champions the work of women (cisgender, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer or intersex) with the aim of improving visibility for women in the film sector and addressing the current gender imbalance in animated film.

Produced with support from Animated Women Scotland.

Please note: Our online film programme is only accessible for UK audiences.
