A program of MIAF films especially selected by a panel of 3 Deaf persons who believe the selected clips are best suited for Deaf viewers.

'Nexus’ - a means of connection from the screen to viewers - is a specially selected series of short animated movies from hundreds of animation submitted from all over the world.

Animation is a visually expressive medium. Much of its power to communicate resides within the DNA of the thousands of images that make up each film. The Deaf community are more acutely aware of this than anybody and MIAF leapt at the chance to invite a special jury from this community to run their very special, critical eye over the MIAF program and come up with their own selection of highlights.

”There are various clips, ranging from grievous to powerful, from the dramatic to the humorous! It is easy to see the point the animators are trying to bring across”.
James Blyth, Co-ordinator – Deaf Jury.

Selection jury: James Blyth, Irene Holub & Luke King
Coordinated by Lynn Gordon
