Festival Description:

Organizer  of  the Rising  of  Lusitania-AnimaDoc  Film  Festival is Animation Across Borders, in collaboration with Big Adventure Cinema. Rising of Lusitania  -AnimaDoc Film Festival will be held on Liverpool (UK), 1-3 February 2019 . Venue: The Tapestry Liverpool.

The base of the Rising of  Lusitania -AnimaDoc Film Festival is international competition dedicated entirely  to animated documentaries.

The first recognized example of animadoc (animated documentary) is Winsor McCay's short film “The Sinking of the Lusitania” (1918, 12-minute-long), which uses animation to portray the 1915 sinking of RMS Lusitania. The port of registry for RMS Lusitania was Liverpool. Now, 100 years after the premiere of Winsor McCay's movie and 103 years after Lusitania's tragedy, we want to commemorate those facts and those people through the international film festival held in the amazing multicultural city of The Bealtes and Lusitania.
