ANIMATION DINGLE FESTIVAL 2016

Welcome to the website of the 4th Annual Animation Dingle Festival,  where industry and third level participants join together to celebrate the best in class of animated content. The event is made up of conferences, screenings, workshops, and of course the 2016 Student Animation Awards.

Top executives from Amazon and Disney will join with the BBC, RTÉ, and a wealth of industry professionals, to share their thoughts on the many opportunities that exist today in the Animation Sector, both in Ireland and internationally. The festival hopes to offer students a global perspective on the art of developing, financing, and producing animated content, for screens both big and small, with beautiful Dingle as a dramatic backdrop.

The festival will screen over 120 shorts and features from Ireland and around the world over its two days.

Look forward to seeing you in Dingle!
