Returning this year with an amazing line-up of panel discussions and poster sessions, BFX PRO is a symposium dedicated to those developing the latest innovations in the creative industries.

Aimed at children aged 5-18 years, BFX Family Weekend offers a range of activities, including screenings, talks and animation workshops, to inspire the next wave of talent.
