Rising of Lusitania 2019

After 4 years fighting for Liverpool, as the only one place on the Earth where this particular festival should start their history, and 100. years after Winsor McCay’s "The Sinking of the Lusitania”, the first edition of the Rising of Lusitania – AnimaDoc Film Festival sailed on the maiden voyage.

Special screenings, lecture, and first of all - 35 amazing short animated documentaries, which presented the huge variety and possibilities of this unique connection. From classical to more experimental approaches - those animated documentaries touch and closeup the external and inner worlds, as well as the historical and current events.

Juliette Marchand, Kim Noce and Aaron Wood - The first Lusitania Jury have had a considerable challenge to choose the laureates. After long discussion finally they made it!

Kim Noce said: Amongst the selections there were so many good film and it was hard to choose the awards, a jury is a snapshot of 3 minds coming together for a brief moment in time. Quality is not the issue, all films had something remarkable at the time but like in a beautiful forest you might spot one bird rather than an another. One can’t help subjectivity and chance.
