In addition to movie animation, they will discuss video games, commercials, special effects and interactive techniques. Entrance to the conference costs COP47,000 ($26).
Two Colombian animators, Felipe Morell and Ed Quintero, with careers in Hollywood will make an appearance at the festival.
The latest work in animation will also be showcased with the screening of over 80 animation projects which have been completed by some of the best animators in the world.
