Kilkenny Animated Festival

Lighthouse was delighted to be a part of this year's Kilkenny Animated Festival which brought some of the finest animation talent in the world to Kilkenny for one weekend in October.

We invited two of our favourite artists, Harry Bliss (who illustrated the ‘Bug Diaries’ books) and Candy Guard (creator of Channel 4’s series ‘Pond Life’) to come and chat with Gilly Fogg in front of a festival audience. We had an insight into their journey as artists, their struggles and triumphs along the way and talked about what they’re going to do next. We’re already excited about who we’ll be inviting to next year’s festival, which will be happening from the 2nd to 4th October 2020 (watch this space…!).
