Video: FILMCLUB reporter Emily talks to BFI children's programmer Justin Johnson about the amazing animations at this year's festival, and we get to hear from the animators behind the film that kicked everything off - Frankenweenie.

Profile: The family program is one of the highlights of the BFI London Film Festival this year, with a huge range of wonderful, unique animations from around the world, and Justin Johnson is the man behind all this.

It's a mark of the quality of animated films these days that the festival kicked off with one, namely Tim Burton's Frankenweenie! Here we get to hear from some of the animators who worked on the movie about the painstakingly meticulous process of stop-motion filmmaking, where animators are working on four seconds of film per week! Slow work, but immensely rewarding!
