MIAFF on BBC world news - animation festival discovers a gem - A War to End All Wars -

Still from A War to End All Wars directed by UK animator Ruth Coggins

The Montreal International Animation FIlm Festival is proving itself to be the hippest animation festival. Discovering the film on social media, MIAFF will deliver a world premiere of UK film  A War to End ALl Wars by director Ruth Coggins. Festival director Laurie Gordon recalls noticing a few stills and trailer of the animated film she first noticed on a Twitter feed a few months ago. She recalls, " It wasn't a submission on any portal but I encouraged the director to submit to MIAFF. I was wowed by the images I saw on a twitter post. A War to End All Wars was not quite finished and the director Ruth Coggins was promoting the film on social media.

Gordon continues, "I felt it was visually captivating and depicted the subject matter of war and death with a naive charm in a stop motion style.

The colours in sepia tones captured the era and history through the stop motion animation style.

BBC news reports that the Wallace and Gromit studio invited Ruth Coggins to their production studios for visit.
