About Animex

The Animex International Festival of Animation & Computer Games takes place every year in Middlesbrough in the North East of England. The festival has its roots firmly planted in the creative side of the animation business and acts to provide animators, directors, students, artists, designers, writers and educators with a forum in which they can share their knowledge and skills and promote the art of animation.

We are now into our seventh festival, which is going to be bigger and better than ever. We say this every year, but the facts are that it's true!

Animex Screen will be a week long programme of specially curated films, Animex Game will now cover two days instead of one, the Workshops programme has been expanded and there are many plans to grow other areas of the festival to meet the demands of you, our audience.

We have been working hard developing the festival into something that offers something for everyone, without losing its focus of creativity and animation, and your continued support is very much at the heart of that effort. We look forward to seeing you at Animex 2006 and once again having a week packed with events that inspire and inform.

Our strategy has always been one of inclusion, so if you have any ideas as to how we can make the festival even better, please let us know by emailing chris@animex.net.
