Animex returns with a decade of game success to celebrate

Animex, the international festival of animation and computer games, is returning to Teesside with yet another star line-up featuring some of the industry’s leading names.

The five-day event, the largest of its kind in the UK, features a unique blend of talks, master classes, workshops, film screenings and exhibitions and attracts hundreds of people from across the globe.

There will be even more to celebrate in 2013, the fourteenth year of Animex, as Animex Game celebrates a decade at the festival while Animex Comics is also launched this year.

Another new strand to be introduced this year is AnimEXPO, presented by Teesside University’s initiative for digital excellence and entrepreneurship, DigitalCity Innovation, which will provide a business focus to Animex.

The guest speakers have a wealth of experience between them, having worked for the likes of Disney, Marvel Comics, Ubisoft Reflections, DC Comics and Valve.

Speakers, including Rob Dressel, Marv Wolfman, Rhianna Pratchett, Bay Raitt and Janus Kirkegaard will give talks during the festival, which will run from 18 – 22 February, 2013 at Teesside University, Middlesbrough.
