The Animation Dingle World Tour Programme heads for Toronto

The Animation Dingle ‘World Tour Programme’ keeps on travelling! Dingle International Film Festival will make a presentation of Ireland’s top animators at the Toronto Irish Film Festival.

Following a fantastic reception at the 31st Santa Barbara International Film Festival, some of the country’s finest, and most recent animations will be on showcase. The selection of animated films by Maurice Galway, Director Dingle IFF, includes some of the top names in animation here in Ireland today while also giving a nod to up and coming talent.

[quote title=”John Galway – Toronto Irish Film Festival, Executive Director”]The Toronto Irish Film Festival has always included animated features and shorts in our program, and they are consistently a hit with our audiences. When we wanted to expand the offering and create an annual showcase, Maurice, and the Dingle Festival was the obvious first choice as a partner. Their depth of experience and love for the form will guarantee an amazing program![/quote]

This wonderful selection of Irish professional and student animated film will be screened at Toronto Irish Film Festival on March 6th.

The filmmakers featured are Brown Bag Films, Cartoon Saloon, Kavaleer, Of Maps and Plans, Treehouse Republic, directors Maurice Joyce, Jack O’Shea, and Conor Whelan.
