Animex was founded by Teesside University in 2000 with a view to creating a world-class inclusive festival that would draw some of the games and animation industries' brightest lights and future stars together to share their knowledge with the next generation. Consisting of a unique blend of talks, workshops, networking events, exhibitions and screenings, Animex promotes an ethos of collaboration and sharing and prides itself on its warm friendly atmosphere.
Animex is your chance to meet industry experts, discuss the state-of-the-art, see behind the scenes of the biggest hits, and to have a great time at one of the premier games and animation events anywhere in the world.
Animex Exhibition runs at key dates in the run up to festival week, as well as during Animex. It is your chance to view exciting pre- and post- production artwork and individual projects by artists and designers in the field of animation and games. Please check back for more dates and venues.
