Animation Dingle is an annual event each March, that comes together to celebrate the best Animation Features, Series and Shorts that the Irish and International Animation industry has to offer. Animation Dingle is a major component of the Dingle International Film Festival and works closely with JAM Media, running jointly alongside the main event for the last 4 years, now established as a core component of its screenings, speakers and activities.

Dingle International Film Festival is couched within the breathtaking town of Dingle on the beautiful Dingle Peninsula, southwest Ireland and is part of The Wild Atlantic Way. The festival takes places annually in mid-March and as such it often celebrates St Patrick’s Day as part of its festival programming.

Dingle IFF is the first Irish festival to embrace the field of Animation and in 2015 held Ireland’s first ever Animation Awards ceremony in association with Animation Ireland; it is home to the Murakami Award for animation, (recipients including Jimmy T. Murakami, Richie Baneham and Tomm Moore); it has a full and inclusive Animation Programme of events as part of Animation Dingle; and, housed within this Gaeltacht area, Dingle IFF is proud to promote the Irish language and is the only festival offering an award for Irish Script writing with its Físín event.
