A Quarterly animation night in Birmingham

Based in Birmingham UK, Overlap is an animation show and tell night. 


It's fun and messy. People introduce their work and a main guest 'show&tell's theirs, often with weird performances mixed in. The purpose is to create a regular deadline for filmmakers, and to be a way for the animation community to get together.


Each quarter we have an optional prompt. If it’s interesting, entertaining or well-made we’ll consider it. Animations from 1 second long can be submitted. We’re also a safe space for everyone, including smut. If there’s something sensitive, keep an open mind. Hearing the filmmaker's perspective helps too. 

Overlap is organised by Louis Hudson, with support from BFI Network.
