The LAC will be screening a little known animated film titled "Know Your Europeans", in honour (or not) of the UK triggering Article 50 on Wednesday 29 March and announcing its intention to leave the European Union.
More importantly, informal societies like LAC offer the opportunity to meet other London-based animators and find out the latest news and gossip. There isn't a better place to find out who is hiring animators than in the pub over a pint of London Pride.

Know Your Europeans was John Halas' last film project: a feature film that celebrated the European Union, composed of a series of short films, each about a different European country - and made by a different animation team.
In the end only Bob Godfrey's film Know Your Europeans - UK was ever released. And, only Bob's film, Christoph Simon's film for Germany and the film trailer were ever completed - although several of the others exist in one form or another. This will be the first time all of the various films will be screened together.
