Welcome to BFX

The annual BFX Festival hosts a fantastic line-up of speakers, masterclasses, exhibitions, screenings and networking events. Some of the greatest studios from around the world join us to share their expertise and to inspire the next generation of talent. The final day of the festival is devoted to recruitment, with studios joining us to conduct portfolio reviews, network and give advice to aspiring professionals.


We are preparing an extra special re-launch of the BFX Family Weekend in 2020, hosted in our new Poole Gateway Building on Bournemouth University’s Talbot Campus.
