Welcome to AC19

 

ANIMAE CARIBE FESTIVAL 2019 | 14th – 24th August | Trinidad, Caribbean

Celebrating the Art of Animation in the Caribbean

WELCOME

Walking steadily through 2019 we welcome you to Animae Caribe Animation and Digital Media Festival. In partnership with FilmTT, Caribbean Development Bank, Caribbean Export Development Agency and CARICOM we have been invited to add to our typical agenda the creation of a platform at the CARIFESTA Marketplace. It’s a first of its kind in the many years of CARIFESTA Arts Festival. Eventbrite registration will be sent to you soon, as we would like to make it as accessible as possible to all the Regional Networks and independent animators and game designers in this group.

As customary AC19 provides a unique opportunity for Digital Media Creatives to have a chance to network and collaborate with others in the field. This includes animators, game developers, writers, filmmakers, entrepreneurs, and free thinkers. Four days with fellow industry peers, creating an opportunity for meaningful conversations and for connecting with like-minded creatives. This is an opportunity for informal conversations and contacts, a perfect setting to develop new connections and start the development of new projects.
