Lee Whitmore is one of Australia’s leading animation filmmakers and will be in conversation on stage talking about her craft and presenting selections from her work.

Her short personal films depict intimate moments of family life and memories of childhood, and evoke a charming, nostalgic yearning. They use a variety of techniques, but all are united by their free-flowing, loosely drawn style that is Whitmore’s signature.

Her whimsical humour, quiet attention to detail and small gestures are distinctly her own.

'Lee Whitmore’s films are miniature masterpieces.They have a strong respect for their characters, and are executed with an extraordinary vitality of colour, line and movement. They are intensely personal and honest, and few other animators can come close to their sensitive depiction of a private world' -  Andrew Pike
