Welcome to the website of the 8th 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 2020 Student Animation Awards.
In 2019, guests such as Bob Peterson from Pixar, Kira Lehtomaki from Disney and legendary Bonnie Arnold in Dreamworks Animations 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. Ireland’s own Nora Twomey, director of The Breadwinner (2018) from Cartoon Saloon also spoke with inspiration, winning the prestigious Murikami Award.
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.
Over the two days the festival will screen both professional and student shorts and features from Ireland and around the world.
We can’t wait to welcome you to Dingle!
