What’s it all about?

BFX is designed to celebrate and promote the visual effects and animation industry, inspire the next wave of talent and share the latest knowledge. Returning for a second year, the BFX Festival consists of a unique programme of public screenings, presentations, workshops, a career hub showing you how to get involved in the industry, and family friendly events. This year’s festival will also include a two day academic conference and a number of workshops for professionals, hobbyists and families. The very best VFX and animation students across the country are also taking part in a 7-week competition over the summer; followed by screenings of their work and an awards ceremony at the festival itself.

Who’s it for?

Anyone who shares a love of movies, visual effects, animation and games; be they a student looking for a career, already working in the industry, at school or just a film enthusiast. We’ve got some terrific industry supporters on board and look forward to bringing you a second exciting BFX Festival next year.
