We had a programme rammed with great animation. Louis was dressed a giant felt Overlap eyeball. Max tore off Louis' face. And we were joined by Oscar-nominated CalArts alumni, Siqi Song.

Siqi's films are packed with feeling, humour, and a lot of felt. As well as winning plenty of awards, they have screened at the likes of Sundance, SXSW, Annecy and Ottawa.

We also got to see preview of Room To Read, a collaboration from Siqi and our very own Second Home Studios.

We had an All-Star, Topflow, Flatpack Festival Special, and we were nearly at capacity with over 250 people in the room. Was Louis dressed as a shiny volcano? As a prawn? Was is 'Topflow'?

The film programme was rammed with inspiring work, with guests coming from Edinburgh, London and Poland! Congratulations to Amber Iles for winning a print from Will for her Topflow submission.

A LOT had happened since our special guests Will Anderson and Ainslie Henderson were last at Overlap 3.5 years ago . We saw how Ainslie’s early tests turned into over a year animating outdoors for his BFI funded short, Shackle. Fresh from speaking at Pictoplasma, Will showed how obsessively deep he has got into Blender.

And if one Overlap wasn't enough, the following day we had a Q&A screening of Will and Ainslie feature documentary, A Cat Called Dom.

It was nice to see loads of new inspirational faces, including a sensitive greyhound and a giant thumb that smushed my face. We also had pots of Play-Doh dotted around for people to smush to their will.

Sam Gainsborough came to talk through his incredible work. Sam is a mixed media director, repped by Blink Ink. His final NFTS film ‘Facing It’ won international awards, including Vimeo’s Best Of The Year. Sam recently guest directed on Channel 4’s ‘Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared’. Bringing his instantly recognisable claymation style to the series. “Urgh, claymation”

Thanks to everyone who got involved, Max Priddy for being on the buttons, and BFI Network & Lemar Barrett for their support.
