Manimation: The Manchester Animation Festival – New Players, New Perspectives

The must attend event for animators and  those involved in children’s content production.

MIDAS, Manchester’s inward investment agency, has joined forces with The Children’s Media Conference, the UK’s premier organisation for the kids’ content industries, to run Manimation: The Manchester Animation Festival.

The Manimation festival will be delivered as a series of one-day events which aim to highlight the opportunities within this sector and help Manchester’s SMEs to compete on a global scale.

The events are designed to inform companies and freelancers about key factors for success in working for the children’s and animation audience. Speakers will include broadcasters, commissioners, buyers and animation consultants and the events will help companies to understand the commissioning and acquisition needs of the key UK broadcasters of animation, and their commissioning processes.


Where are the alternative sources of distribution and funding? Who’s making money in these new spaces and how? What are the creative opportunities and challenges in new approaches and how do interactive media specialists interface with the world of animation?

SMEs from Greater Manchester who attend two or more events  can attend the festival for free. To qualify for free tickets, select the Greater Manchester ticket option and enter the promotion code MAN2013.
