What & Where?
FLIP is an eclectic mix of all things animation. Based in the heart of the Midlands the festival provides a wide range of experiences from educational workshops for young people to experimental animation for grown ups; from industry led panels to feature film screenings and from international showcases and retrospectives of short films to spotlights on animation studios.
FLIP is organised and run by Light House Media Centre . It is part funded by UK Film Council (Lottery) through Screen WM and Wolverhampton City Council
