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.
