Animation Dingle is now going into its 8th year!

Animation Dingle commits to delivering the very best in Animation from Ireland and around the globe to our Animation Dingle Festival annually; delivering through conference, workshops, screenings and awards and in the spirit of sharing and supporting.  In 2019, guests from Pixar, Amazon, Apple, Disney, Dreamworks, Netflix, NBC Universal, Nickelodeon,  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.  
2020 will be no exception with top industry delegates invited to present at Animation Dingle.

Animation Dingle offers students an events programme of the highest standard, connecting them directly with industry professionals in a thought provoking, inspiring and fun environment. 

In this supportive way, we can bring cutting edge developments to the front line of student learning whilst at the same time offering opportunities to network and connect with possible future employers.  This environment is symbiotic and also allows for industry professionals to ‘scout’ and look out for potential in young upcoming animators.

Animation Dingle offers students an important global perspective on the art of developing, financing, and producing animated content, for screens both big and small, whilst allowing Industry experts and companies to meet upcoming talent and share their knowledge with them in a symbiotic melting pot – with beautiful Dingle as a dramatic backdrop.

Furthermore, Animation Dingle is committed to screening not only the best in Animation short and feature formats, but also to exhibiting those screenings in unique and high calibre locations. Animation Dingle has grown from simply providing a screening platform and now offers a combination of conference, screenings, workshops and awards.  

Animation Dingle is committed to a 50/50 student/professional ratio and to a 50/50 female/male ratio.
“Animation Dingle serves as a reminder to focus on what’s most important in fostering creativity – growing and cultivating students’ imagination.  Ireland has become a force in animation and Dingle is the perfect place to celebrate this emergence as you breathe in the fresh air and soak up the sights of this stunning seaside town.” Tara Sorensen, Creative Development, Apple
