Coming Out Autistic

‘Animation Now’ celebrates a new generation of queer animators. The programme includes both 2D and 3D animation in the form of narrative shorts, experimental art film and an immersive game walkthrough.

The screening starts with the heartfelt 3D animation Dear Nana telling the story of the narrator’s late grandmother who was a supportive figure throughout their life. Clotilde follows suit in the 3D animated medium but provides a playful light-hearted moment in the programme.

The screening ends with a panel featuring some of the filmmakers in the programme on the newest wave of digital animation. Expect talk of gaming-inspired filmmaking.

Curated by Nat Lall.

Content Warnings:
- Discussion of living with a chronic illness;
- Depictions of animated genitalia, animated masturbation.
