Welcome to BFX 2019

BFX returns this October with another fantastic line-up of speakers, masterclasses, exhibitions, screenings and networking events. Some of the greatest studios from around the world are set to join us for the 4 day festival and new to this year are themed days around key areas; Tuesday is dedicated to VFX, Wednesday to television, games and real-time technologies, and Thursday to animation. The final day of the festival will be devoted to recruitment, with around 20 studios joining us on Friday to find the next generation of talent, conduct portfolio reviews, network and give advice to aspiring professionals.

The BFX Family Weekend is on hold this year, in preparation for an extra special re-launch in 2020, hosted in our new Poole Gateway Building on Bournemouth University’s Talbot Campus.
