April 4th 2014 (1100- 1800)
BIS Conference Centre, 1 Victoria Street SW1H 0ET
Tickets: £70 + VAT Register now.
The CMC’s annual Spring animation event returns for its third year to the BIS Conference Centre in Westminster for a full day of case-studies and panels exploring the animation series tax breaks – one year on from launch. Issues around qualification, operation, accounting, collaboration, co-funding and training will all come into play and if you’re taking advantage of the tax incentives or considering doing so – this is a vital day for you.
The event will also include the chance to network widely in the UK animation sector, with funders and broadcasters and CMC’s international guests.
