Animation Dingle Film Festival
March 18, 2016 - March 19, 2016
Animation Dingle is an annual event each March, that comes together to celebrate the best Animation Features, Series and Shorts that the Irish and International Animation industry has to offer. Animation Dingle is a major component of the Dingle International Film Festival and works closely with JAM Media, running jointly alongside the main event for the last 4 years, now established as a core component of its screenings, speakers and activities.
Having been to many interesting film events over the years I can honestly say with hand on my heart the Dingle film festival is by far the best craic I’ve ever had at a film festival. This may have been influenced by Dingle’s scenic beauty, the fantastic company or my pride in receiving the Murakami Award. When The Wind Blows was a major reason for my becoming an animator.
