Leeds Animation Workshop at 40!

DISH chemist cookAnnouncing a celebration of the 40th birthday of the amazing Leeds Animation Workshop! This radical women’s collective was founded in 1978 and is still going strong! We’ll be showing a selection of their feminist short animation films at the Rio Cinema in Dalston, London, on Sunday 2 December at 3.30pm.

Leeds Animation Workshop is a not-for-profit, cooperative company, run by women, which produces animated films on social issues. It began as a group of women friends who came together to make a film about the need for nurseries. Throughout its history, the Workshop has been run by women, who have carried out all stages of the production process.
