The BIC in Bournemouth will play host to the BFX Festival, bringing the cream of the VFX industry to the south coast. The Bournemouth Echo took a look at the event, which takes place on 3rd to the 7th October 2018.

The BFX Festival will be opened by BBC arts editor Will Gompertz and will showcase such films as Solo – A Star Wars Story, The Jungle Book and this autumn’s Disney release Ralph Breaks the Internet.

The event, from October 3-7 at the BIC, will attract some of the world’s leading visual effects artists, with Disney sending people from the US.

It is organised by Bournemouth University, many of whose graduates work on major Hollywood films.

Julian Foddy, whose recent work includes Transformers: The Last Knight and Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, will talk about his work on Solo – A Star Wars Story, for which he was visual effects supervisor.
