Principal Sponsor of Animat-ED
Canterbury Christchurch University

Canterbury Anifest is proud to present Animat-ED 2012; a free day of animation for schools in the South East.  The day is jammed packed full of the best animation produced by young people, for young people.  The event is taking place as part of Canterbury Anifest at Canterbury Christ Church University’s new Augustine House building with full disabled access.

DreamWorks Animations lead animator Cassidy Curtis will be giving a talk about his work on the fantastic Madagascar 3.  He’ll be screening material and giving a behind-the-scenes insight on how they created the animation.

We will be showcasing films from Home Grown Talent 2012, which were made by young people in the South East and the theme of music.

There are 10 places for pupils plus staff, given on a first come, first served basis.  Booking will be available from 1st September.  We will require risk assessment forms from all schools prior to the event.  Please be aware that there is no parking directly available, however the Holman’s Meadow and Watling Street car parks are very close by and if you require a map or directions of available places these can be given upon request.

If you, your school or community group are interested please get in contact with us to reserve your places in advance as availability is limited.  Call 01227 281966 or email
