Animation Dingle Festival took place last weekend and the Brown Bag team were there en force meeting students, discussing portfolios and taking a look back at our short films with a Brown Bag retrospective!
We are also beyond thrilled to announce that Brown Bag Films Co-founder's, Cathal Gaffney and Darragh O'Connell, were honoured at this year's festival with the prestigious Murakami Award for outstanding achievement in animation!
The standard at the International Student Animation Awards and the YAOTY Awards was simply amazing and we're very much looking forward to the next generation of animators!
Our Recruitment Team were also suitably impressed with the standard at the Portfolio Reviews:
“It’s hard to believe that Dingle Animation Festival is already over! Two days jam-packed with great screenings, talks and workshops won’t be forgotten easily. Everyone was able to find something to suit their creative tastes.
From a recruitment perspective, the most important meeting was Portfolio Reviews on Saturday, 24th March, where we could meet and talk with many, very talented students who will soon enter the job market.
Dingle Animation Festival was a great opportunity to meet and talk to young creatives from Ireland and abroad.” - Janka Wojcik, Recruitment Co-ordinator
All in all, it was a pretty awesome weekend!
A HUGE thanks to the team at Animation Dingle for hosting another fantastic event, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in the beautiful surroundings of Dingle and we're already counting down the days to the next one!
