Join us for the launch of Lightbox

This weekend The Model hosts Lightbox Animation Festival, currently Ireland’s only dedicated animation fest. We’ve a pretty stellar line-up of animation films on the bill to suit all ages and all interests from myths and legends, to music and love stories.

On Saturday(tomorrow), we’ll be launching Lightbox at 3.15pm in The Model atrium space, and we would love if you could join us.

Following on from that will be the Animators Anonymous at 4pm featuring Mike Ahern from D.A.D.D.Y. & Fergal Brennan.

Over the weekend we’re also bringing the wonderful Darklight programme of innovative short animation to Sligo, as well as showing feature films and programmes which focus on particular animators and an exciting one off event by group Synth Eastwood with DJ sets from David Kitt and sound producer Shocko.

This year Lightbox profiles the work of hugely successful Irish animation company Cartoon Saloon, producers of Oscar®-nominated The Secret of Kells. If you haven’t caught this great film already, it will be screened on Saturday at 2pm.

Hope to see you over the weekend!
