Every year we plan a trip to an international animation festival. Its a really important part of our calendar: we have a great time, and staff and students keep their fingers on the pulse of contemporary animation.

Of course Festivals are also an important way to get your work seen by the industry – and our students have a great track record! Their work shows internationally, and we celebrate many awards with our final year students. Here are just a few:
