About Animex

Due to COVID-19, we have decided to move Animex 2020 online. We will still bring you speakers from the biggest studios talking about the most amazing productions, all within the familiar, friendly atmosphere Animex is renowned for, as well as all the networking opportunities, Animex Exhibition, Animex Screen and more... The only difference (apart from Animex 2020 being FREE!) is that you will be able to enjoy the experience from the comfort of home.

Animex was founded by Teesside University in 2000 with a view to creating a world-class inclusive festival that would draw some of the games and animation industries' brightest lights and future stars together to share their knowledge with the next generation. Consisting of a unique blend of talks, workshops, networking events, exhibitions and screenings, Animex promotes an ethos of collaboration and sharing and prides itself on its warm friendly atmosphere.
