MARCH 24-25 2021

Due to the global pandemic, the current rise in cases in Ireland and the current recommendations, we are playing our part in our country’s recovery.  

With this in mind, we have made the decision to hold a Virtual Festival this year.

Explore the Programme

Virtual Passes


Watch our animation programmes, workshops, keynotes, talks, on devices anywhere in the world.

Over the two days of the festival we will screen the very best in both professional and student shorts and features from Ireland and around the world.

The festival offers students a global perspective on the art of developing, financing, and producing animated content, for screens both big and small.

Through our online Studio Pub Trail, students will have the opportunity to meet online with studio heads and have their portfolio reviewed and potentially arrange to have an online interview with the studio.

Be part of our Discord community with the opportunity to contribute to our art auction, sharing your sketches and communicating with animation studios and other ticket holders.

Professional Festival Pass €75 (this includes all fees and taxes)

Student Festival Pass €38 (this includes all fees and taxes)
