CANCELLED – The VFX Festival 2020

Industry Events  |  16 March 2020 - 18 March 2020

The VFX Festival, hosted by Escape Studios, is an annual celebration of visual effects, animation, games and motion graphics.

It’s an event for emerging talent to explore the creative industries; it’s also an opportunity for creative professionals to share their insights on award-winning productions. In 2020, the festival will focus on discovering and developing new and emerging talent.

Two parts of The VFX Festival 2020 – EDU and Emerging Talent will take place on 16 – 18 March 2020 at the Southbank Centre – the UK’s largest arts centre based in the middle of London’s most vibrant cultural quarter, on the South Bank of the River Thames. The VFX Festival After Hours event will take place at Escape Studios in central London, within a short walking distance from numerous award-winning studios.

The VFX Festival EDU will take place on Monday, 16 March 2020. It’s an event for school and college students who would love to learn about the world of VFX, Games, Animation and motion graphics during inspiring talks and meetings with industry professionals.

The VFX Festival Emerging Talent will take place on Tuesday, 17 March – Wednesday, 18 March 2020. It’s an event for students currently studying within higher education and young professionals who are looking to kick start a career in the creative industries. The festival will be filled with inspiring talks, panel discussions and recruitment exhibition zone.

The VFX Festival After Hours will take place on 16 – 18 March 2020 in the heart of London, within walking distance from numerous award winning studios. These late afternoon technical talks and advanced workshops are dedicated to experienced industry professionals looking for knowledge-building opportunities and the chance to network. The sessions are also suitable for young professionals looking to progress their career in the creative industries.

The 2020 VFX Festival has been cancelled. 

Due to the increasing spread of Covid-19 and a number of our partners being unable to participate in The VFX Festival 2020 we have made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s festival (including The VFX Festival EDU; The VFX Festival Emerging Talent and The VFX Festival After Hours) scheduled on 16 – 18 March 2020.
