An Opportunity for Students of Art or Students who have an Interest in Animation, Graphics, Illustration etc.


Date: 16th November - 14th December 2018

At the 2018 ‘Off Line Film Festival’ a new annual Animation Residency was introduced, where two animators were given the headspace and financial support to focus on a passion project in a fully equipped Animation Studio located in Birr Co. Offaly.

This year’s residents are the award winning animators/illustrators Jack O’Shea & Dashiell Silva, both of whom excel in their own areas of animation.  Jack O’Shea currently lectures part time in IADT and has had his work screened at hundreds of film festivals worldwide.
