CONFERENCE

The Animation Dingle Conference is a day-long event where top executives and creatives participate in keynote speeches, panels, presentations and discussions. Full to the brim with students and professionals, this day centres around an open ethos of sharing - those established along their professional journey reach back to show the way to those coming up behind them. Interspersed throughout the day are events, structured opportunities and informal breaks for both to chat and exchange ideas.

This vibrant, energetic conference lies at the heart of the 2-day Festival, ending with events such as the Big Pitcher and Pitch and a Pint and culminating in the Animation Dingle Awards.

AWARDS

Animation Dingle is a Academy AwardsⓇ qualifying Festival.

At the end of the Animation Dingle Conference, the Dingle Skellig Hotel makes way for the Animation Dingle Annual Awards.

All selected work is screened throughout the Festival but here, winners in our varying categories - students and professional - are announced.

Special categories are also present at the Awards, and the Animation Dingle Murakami Award lies firmly here - in memory of the incandescent Jimmy T Murakami, fondly known as the Godfather of Irish Animation.

WORKSHOPS

Our Workshop Programme is populated and led out by our esteemed guests. The Workshop Programme allows animators to meet these experts in a learning environment, but also a much smaller one than is offered at the main Conference. Here animators can chat and ask questions in a supported way. Our guests are always willing to share their expertise and to chat to those coming up in the industry.

Animation Dingle seeks out experts for our Workshop Programme who are top in their field, but we also seek to offer a Programme that is dynamic and reflective of new and upcoming trends within the sector.
