There will be some limited capacity sessions which will be based on a first-come allocation. Tickets can be purchased for the full festival or as a daily pass.

Please note, there are a limited number of daily passes, and they will only be released closer to the Festival’s start date.

We have recently added daily passes for access to the Festival speakers, and on Saturday we have a special Family Pass that allows one parent and two children under 18 years old to attend for £30 – more information here 

This year the Festival will be hosted at the Bournemouth International Centre in the town centre, so we have a great new venue. We also have a number of family and public facing events across the Town Centre.


Our FREE recruitment fair is back, and its going to be even bigger than last years, with recruiters from Animal Logic, Framestore, Double Negative, MPC, The Mill and Axis Animation all confirmed. The Careers Hub can be found in the Purbeck Lounge, next to the speakers hall, from the 24th – 26th September, 10am – 6pm. You do not require a festival pass to attend the recruitment fair.


We also have a fantastic concept art exhibition that will be on display at the BIC, direct from the vaults of Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Pictures – Sleeping Beauty and Maleficent.


Leading Australian VFX and Animation studio Animal Logic will be talking about their blockbuster film ‘The Lego Movie’, giving you behind the scenes insight in to how they created those beautiful characters and richly coloured environments.
