Are you new to the animation industry? Trying to get into it? Just curious?

Here’s a chance to find out about how financial policies and practices shape the animation workplace. We’ll discuss how international studios outsource animation work to Kjipuktuk-Halifax, how that relates to public funding for commercial film production, the effects of studios’ ownership of distribution and exhibition networks (vertical integration, like Disney Studios and Disney+), and current movements towards unionization in the industry. Featuring people at different career stages, the panel will ask what it’s like to be a freelancer in the animation world and what it’s like to support your “passion projects” by working in the industry.
