About us

Animation Alliance UK is a broad, informal association of independent animation professionals – animators, artists, programmers, producers, researchers, critics, academics, studios, festivals – across a wide range of creative and professional practice and engagement.

Many of our 320 members, inevitably, work in both cultural and commercial contexts; however, AAUK’s focus is on independent practice and cultural film.

AAUK exists:

  • to champion the work of the independent animation sector in the UK
  • to act as a network and focus for sharing information and discussion
  • to advocate for the support of independent animation in the UK and for investment in production, training and archive

If you are an animation professional and would like to join the Animation Alliance and subscribe to our mailing list,  please email animationalliance@gmail.com 

Please give your name, professional role, any affiliation (eg production company, university), plus anything else relevant/notable (eg BAFTA/BAA festival nominations/wins), and a website URL (optional). Only your name will be listed on Directory of Members page.

We will send you emails from time to time but we will not pass your contact details on to any third parties. You can unsubscribe at any time.

The Alliance was established and is coordinated by Animate Projects.

Please note that we are not Animation UK, the trade body that campaigns for fairer trading conditions for UK animation broadcast producers.
