Dennis will be joined by Marion Hewitt from North West Film Archives who will be screening a selection of UK animation from the NWFA collection based at MMU in Manchester. http://www.nwfa.mmu.ac.uk/ This is a fantastic opportunity for those interested in film, animation and the archives to see some rare footage from two very special collections.
