BFX Sponsorship opportunities

We were very lucky to have been sponsored by some amazing companies last year – a HUGE thank you to everyone who was involved in BFX 2015.

Our festival in 2016 is fast approaching and we are pleased to be offering several ways to sponsor the BFX Festival and Competition and to demonstrate your organisation’s vision for the future of visual effects, animation and gaming in the UK. Supported by Bournemouth Borough Council – BFX is the creative, cultural and educational centrepiece of the region’s digital initiative and will be widely promoted as part of the town’s commitment to encouraging the development of the creative industries across the South West of England and UK. With significant support from industry already confirmed, this standout event is the perfect platform to associate your brand with a wide audience that includes visual effects, games and animation professionals, young adults, students, schools, universities and media fans of all ages.
