Brief History of Animated Exeter

Animated Exeter is the South West’s leading independent animation film festival and the longest running. It was founded in 1999 by Exeter City Council, going independent as a private company in 2009, and has expanded from an initial visitor attendance of 400 to over 12,000.

The festival now shows in the region of 140 animated films featuring work from the best in the business. Over the past 11 years we have attracted high-profile guests from the international animation scene, including Aardman Animations, Ray Harryhausen, Bill Plympton, Suzie Templeton and Michael Dudok de Wit.

Inspiring the animators of the future ... Our aims are met through our growing partnerships with schools, colleges, universities, arts organisations, galleries and venues in the South West, and with generous funding from Exeter City Council, and the national lottery through Arts Council England.
