Notes on CFM's 2019 visit 

Somehow we were unaware of the coming “Anifest” in Canterbury. But fortunately we were alerted to it the day before, and so, but disappointingly, Members were unable to attend as many sessions as they may have wished.

As we were having our March meeting (a visit to the “Kent Museum of the Moving Image” in Deal) and our club social lunch in “Dunkerleys” in the same town, none of us were able to attend any of the Friday sessions.

Luckily a few of us were able to go to some of the Saturday events, (though none of us at the same session).

One Member reported

  • “The website was very clear and to the point, and gave readers the information they needed, and made you feel welcome to attend the sessions with minimal fuss. And this was fully reflected in the experience attending on the day.”
  • “I went to the 12 noon session “Best of British not shortlisted” all films were of a very high technical and imaginative standard in an enjoyable range of styles. I was only sad I could not attend the “Shortlisted” show later in the day."

One Member reported

"I went with my 8yr old grandson. We enjoyed both workshops:

  • design your own Minion where we learnt how to create a "goodie" or a "baddie" character. We (he) chose a baddie. Lots of dark colours and sharp features.
  • create your own Stop Motion film. First we created our own clay models. Then we created a background and floor for our scene. Finally we created our own blockbuster by moving our characters around, capturing a scene as we went. We used a stop motion app on an iPad supplied by AniFest.

In between the workshops we enjoyed the special screening of films for the under twelves."

Next time we hope to see more.

In future we will do our best to be aware of the dates for the next festival and let you know here.

We are proud to have this event in our city and will support it in the future.
