First the Gayming Awards, then devcom's Call For Change Summit and now with great pleasure #RaiseTheGame is happy to announce it's third event partnership of the year with the Tees Valley’s international festival of animation, visual effects and games, otherwise known as Animex.

Following the success of last year’s virtual festival, Animex once again takes place online and returns with yet another stellar line-up of speakers from top studios across the world. The festival features workshops for budding creators, student film screenings to our international audience, networking opportunities with some of the brightest minds in the industry, and much more!

With #RaiseTheGame and Ukie as Event Partners for this year's Animex, there will be a new addition to the festival in the form of the Animex Inclusivity & Diversity Showcase - A selection of inspiring speakers doing amazing things to make positive change in the animation, VFX and games industries.    

#RaiseTheGame are supporting Animex by curating this showcase, which will feature seven diversity tracks to come and enjoy:

  • Gender Inclusivity
  • Culture & Ethnicity
  • Sexual Identity
  • Disability & Accessibility
  • Neurodiversity
  • Mental Health & Wellbeing
  • Social Mobility

Hosted by Teesside University for more than 20 years, there really is something for everyone – from the seasoned pros, to career starters, and those who simply love animation, films and games.
