We only have a limited amount of time at The Picture House, and we aimed to provide a good mix of animation styles and a good geographical spread of the entries we received.
Uncanny Valley would like to thank all the filmmakers who submitted their work for consideration. We will be in contact with individual filmmakers as we hope to screen some of the entries as part of our ongoing programme of screenings at Magpie Cinema events throughout the year.
Thanks again for your submissions and your patience!
Uncanny Valley team. x
