Animation Dingle – Festival Coordinator

Website JAM Media

The Animation Dingle Festival is 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 2019 Student Animation Awards.

In 2018, top executives from Amazon and Disney joined 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 both professional and student shorts and features from Ireland and around the world over its two days.
