“=Boulder Media are committed to supporting new talent and we look forward to welcoming Tim to Dublin. This workshop is designed for both second level and third level students with the tools to build a successful career in animation and the team at Boulder are keen to encourage these events that will assist the new talented animators that are emerging in the industry.

I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate the organisers of the festival on their hard work. The festival was launched in 2011 and it has a strong ethos of giving back to the community. It has provided independent and student film makers the opportunity to showcase their work and many of the winners are now making a name for themselves, both at home and abroad.

We would like to thank Boulder Media for their support and we can’t wait until the 26th October when things finally start! We believe that film festivals should be fun and for everyone and look forward to Tim’s workshop and the screenings.
