A shortlist of selected films, including the four finalists, will be screened at the YAOTY event.
This is an exciting chance for new and young talent to present their ideas to the largest gathering of animators in Ireland. Selected filmmakers are invited to RSVP to meet with Jambassadors at the Dingle Skellig Hotel at 10.20 am.
