Animation Reflected

Image of event BAFTA animation talk
Run in association with BAFTA, this event features a panel of visiting producers sharing their views of the UK animation industry and what international partners are looking for. 

We’ll explore how the rest of the world views the resurgence of the UK animation industry, and hear expert advice on collaboration with potential international partners, from pre-conceptions to the impact of tax relief, and what skills and content they need. 

The panel talk will be followed by networking drinks, and is part of the Film London animation familiarisation trip.
