Emerging Talent
This year the VFX Festival kicks off with the "Emerging Talent" event which runs for two days, from February 6-7th at London's South Bank Centre. This part of the festival is specifically aimed at students and graduates.

Why come to the VFX Festival?
The annual VFX festival is a great way to find out about the latest trends in our industry, who is hiring, and what skills are in demand.  Here at Bucks we strongly encourage all our current, past and future students to attend. Come and find out what the future holds for our industry.

Where and When?
The "Emerging Talent" part of the 2019 VFX Festival will run at London's South Bank from Wednesday 6th to Thursday 7th February 2019.  Address: Purcell Room, Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London, SE1 8XX

What's on display?
Like last year, the 2019 schedule includes a series of industry talks and showcases from across the VFX, Animation, Games and Motion Graphics sectors.  VFX is a constantly changing landscape. Last year's "big thing" is this year's old news. So come along, and find out about the latest trends in our industry.

South Bank Centre
For many Bucks students, and also recent graduates, the most important part of the Festival is probably the recruiters, who come from all the big animation and VFX houses hunting for talent.

If you'd like to meet in person the people who could help you get a job (and why wouldn't you?) - this is the place to be.

Where can you book tickets?
2019 Tickets are on sale for the "Emerging Talent" event on 6-7 February at the EventBrite page here.
