Last Years Festival
International Festival of Animation

Thursday January 31 - Friday February 1

Last year was our second International Animation Festival, the response was fantastic we had some of the biggest name in the business.

Bob Godfrey
Aardman Animation
The Mill
Ed Hooks

Bolex Brothers
Dudok De Wit Animation
Paul Wells

Following on from last years hugely successful events which brought together past-masters such as Ray Harryhausen and future stars like Michael Dudok De Wit who went on to claim the Oscar for his short film Father and Daughter, the 2002 event has a hard act to follow. Not to mention an evening with Bob Godfrey which took place in on of middlesbroughs exclusive night spots, with an informal chat over a glass of wine/pint of beer.

However, it seems that organisers Chris Williams and Siobhan Fenton have managed to achieve the impossible. The line up of speakers and workshops is to say the very least impressive.
