Joanna Quinn Animation Masterclass

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Joanna Quinn is one of Britain’s most distinctive animators. Her films have won just about every major international award, including BAFTAs and Emmys, and have received three Oscar® nominations.

Her first film, Girls Night Out (1987), featuring working-class heroine Beryl, was a celebration of uninhibited female sexuality that won three major awards at Annecy. Since then, Joanna and her writing and producing partner, Les Mills, have created three more films featuring Beryl: Body Beautiful; Dreams and Desires: Family Ties; and Affairs of the Art, released last year, which is now BAFTA- and Oscar®-nominated.

The politics of gender and oppression, along with Joanna’s fascination with the eccentricities of the female body, remain central themes of Joanna’s work.

In this masterclass, Joanna talks will take us behind the scenes of her incredible work, letting us into her creative process, showing artwork and clips, and animating live on stage.
