The Ballyfermot College Animation Showcase takes place 8th of July in the Sugar Club.
Past graduates of the Ballyfermot College of Further Education (BCFE) have achieved astonishing levels of success in the field of animation with Richie Baneham (Oscar winner for Avatar) Tomm Moore (Oscar nominee for Secret of Kells) and Brown Bag’s Oscar nominated shorts Granny O’Grim and Give Up Yer Auld Sins to name but a few!
8 of the 12 films created by the final year students this year secured a place in this year’s Galway Film Fleadh.
Created in a wide range of styles including 2D, 3D, mixed media and classical/hand drawn and spanning a wide range of themes including love, loss, poetry, politics, fiction, fantasy and of course fun! There’s bound to be something for everyone in this colourful collection!
Also this year, the student work of the University of Dundee (Scotland) will also be joining the showcase.
