Next Thursday and Friday, October 19 and 20, Southern Cross University will host the Australian International Animation Festival featuring animated films from 13 countries.
All sessions will be screened at the Whitebrook Theatre at the Lismore campus.
This festival has just run in Sydney and Adelaide and has come north thanks to the efforts of multimedia lecturer Sean OShannessy.
Sean wanted his students to have access to ground-breaking animation techniques and figured this would also attract the regions dedicated film buffs.
Festival passes, covering all five sessions over the two days, cost $30/25 and are available from the Universitys Co-op Bookshop (6621 4484). Or you can buy tickets at the door for $10 a session.
