New Designers

Screening Room

Discover the work of emerging designers experimenting across moving image, animation, film and gaming at New Designers Screening Room, taking place in Week 2 (3-6 July) in our Gallery Hall to see a selection of the best shorts from this year’s new filmmakers and animators.

One of our highlights for 2018 include Thomas Smith’s short film, ‘Escape Zone 300’ – a 1980’s inspired sci-fi short, with nods to Indiana Jones, James Bond and Footloose, in which a sentient robot seeks to make his escape from a maximum high-security facility. Find him in Week 2, exhibiting with UCA Rochester, BA (Hons) Computer Animation Arts, Stand VC66.
