Last year we had speakers from Framestore, Gurrila Games, The Miull and Tadum speaking about their latest projects and releases.

The afternoon holds our prestigious animation film showcase, containing the very best 3D, Games, VFX and 2D animated movies from our graduating class. These films are in stiff competition with each other to win top prizes decided upon by a distinguished panel of industry judges. Last year the audience was a whopping 450 people and at capacity, the day is free to all but seats in high demand so arrive on time to avoid disappointment, and having to watch on the large screen outside.
