(Films in competition)
Pretty much what it says on the can – a compendium
of the strangest or funniest (not always the same thing) films drawn
from the 2000+ submissions we received. Expect smatterings of mindless
violence, intriguing alternative views of the world, a few gutbusters
and a visual overload or two. A MIAF tradition nowadays and a reminder
– if one is needed – that animation knows no imaginative
Live In The Woods
USA, 2007, 3'45
It has to be every crazed hillbilly’s

powerful, this is probably not the film for you.

A crazed, wonderful head-warping extravaganza.
A text book example of how to eat yourself

heads, kites, tanks, trucks and trolleys.

It’s not a career that suits everyone,
but a little rhythm makes cleaning restrooms a lot more fun than it
A heart-felt birthday greeting from the
furthest reaches of a wonderous psychedelic soul.
OK – where to begin! A chronicle

of the male of the species who has problems keeping his tenderest
appendage under cover.
||Another Way To
Spain, 2008, 5'00
After a midnight insect attack, a man goes
through a brain-rattling, full technicolour transformation.
USA, 2007, 12'00

4 school teacher.
