Festive Shindig

Animation, motion graphics & video folk, take a break from the keyframes & join us on Tuesday 12th December for the Animorsels Festive Shindig!

We'll be at The Blind Rabbit in Nottingham (opposite the Contemporary Gallery). Have a few drinks, meet fellow animators, filmmakers and designers!

Just a social get together this time, so no speaker or films. Tickets are free but limited, so grab one so we can let The Blind Rabbit folk know how many of us to expect.

Hope to see you there!

About Us

At Animorsels we run animation evenings, events and socials, bringing together the local animation community to watch animation, make animation, learn new techniques, chat, drink, catch up, meet new people and generally have a bit of fun.


We alternate our main animation evenings which feature a guest speaker and selection of short films alongside our socials which are more of a general get together. At each event we run our short animation challenge, microMorsels, each with a different theme, which we screen just after the short films. We’ve had some great entries at past events!


Animorsels is run by Bottletop, a Nottingham animation studio, with support from RTS Midlands & Antenna. Past events have also had sponsorship from the lovely folk at Juno and Patchworks with regular support for our socials from Das Kino and Penny Lane.


If you haven’t been along to Animorsels yet then pop along to our next event, we’d love to have you there!
