AnimfxNZ 2014 - Here it comes!

Greetings Animfxers,

That's right, AnimfxNZ 2014, the animation, games and visual effects conference held annually in Wellington, New Zealand, is back.

From February 13-15 this year we'll be bringing together some of the biggest and brightest names in the global digital entertainment industry for three days of learning, sharing and networking. Speaker details will begin to appear on the website over the next few days and weeks so keep your eyes peeled to

2013 was a stellar year for the sector. Several New Zealand gamemakers have appeared major international 2013 "best of" lists, Thunderbirds began it's rebirth out in Miramar and the second installment of the Hobbit trilogy opened to rave reviews and box office domination around the world. And we haven't event mentioned the confirmation of the next three Avatar films being made locally. There is so much to celebrate.

Now in its eighth year, AnimfxNZ attracts a diverse range of digital entertainment talent and expertise. Industry professionals at the top of their game congregate alongside students at the very beginning of their careers. Creative, technical and entrepreneurial minds gather to share ideas, discover new talent, network, brainstorm, invent, inspire, plan and ponder.

And all happening in Wellington, the place of the possible...
