Your Step Up - Animation Hot Seat Residency 2020

OFFline Film Festival has announced its 2020 Animation Hot Seat Residency, which will kick off in May, culminating in a premiere of the work created at OFFline Film Festival in October 2020. If you’re an animator or a team of animators who have already graduated and are ready to take the next step, but you need the headspace, work space and support to focus on your passion project, then this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss!


This summer, up to 3 Animators will embed themselves in the beautiful Georgian town of Birr, with accommodation, a stipend and studio space with industry standard software and hardware provided. The animators will receive ongoing mentoring, as well as visual and audio post-production services, from award-winning digital studio Piranha Bar. This exciting opportunity is open to animators working individually, or to dynamic duos (or even trios!) planning to collaborate on a project. 


Funded by The Trench Trust and Offaly County Council, the OFFline Film Festival Animation Residency will be an annual opportunity for Irish animators to create and showcase their work to an audience of filmmakers and film fans.
