MOVE SUMMIT IS SCOTLAND'S ANIMATION GATHERING bringing together creatives from film, television, advertising, games, and visual arts to celebrate the joy of making things move.

International animation industry leaders, practitioners, students and educators are to gather in Edinburgh from the 19th to 21st of February 2020 for the fourth MOVE Summit. An annual gathering celebrating Scotland’s commercial animation sector, with three days of inspiring talks, workshops, networking sessions and professional development, all focussed around the latest and greatest in the international animation and vfx industries.

Returning to the historic Pleasance Courtyard in Edinburgh for the second year running, we have an array of world-class industry speakers and, for the first-time, curated business-to-business and freelance networking sessions as well as our now famous ‘Drink & Draw’ and MOVE Late evening events.

We have developed a stellar line up with speakers from international studios, including Disney Animation Studios, Industrial Light and Magic, Blue Zoo, Rockstar Games, and Epic Games, to name but a few. We have sought to bring together a range of speakers talking about some of the latest and greatest work in the industry, and to celebrate their creative achievements from within Scotland, UK, Europe and beyond.

This flagship event showcases the best work from throughout the industry, and offers a place for industry leaders, support agencies, practitioners, educators and students to gather and get inspired.
