The Cincinnati Animation Network has several ongoing and recurring programs for filmmakers, animators and enthusiasts:

General Meetings/ Hangouts

On the last Tuesday of each month at 7pm (except January), meet up at the General Meeting and talk animation over drinks. Whether you're an animation artist or an enthusiast, come hang out, meet new people, and talk the nerdy talk. The location changes so check out the event post for up-to-date info.

Animation Directors Round Table

The first Wednesday of each month at 7pm at The Brew House (except January) is The Animation Director's Round Table meeting. It is an accountability and support meeting for people who are trying to make their own films or large projects. These meetings are based upon reviewing progress, sharing ideas, and setting goals for ourselves. It's a great meeting if you have a project that you would like to work on and need people to provide moral support and motivation. Brew House is at 1047 E McMillan St, Cincinnati, OH 45206

First Directors Round Table Meeting Recap

The first Animation Directors Round Table Meeting ever, which was last night, was absolutely great.

We went over everyone's projects and goals and talked about whatever issues we were having. Everyone was very supportive and encouraging to each other, we set goals for the next meeting, talked about technical issues, and decided upon meeting frequency, and we had some nice booze and trail mix at the same time at the lovely Overlook Lodge.

After the official business was done we listened to some great live music and talked to each other about various artsy topics.  There were a few new faces who I hope we see again, and a few returning ones that I always love to see!

We decided to hold the meetings monthly. To make it easy lets set it on the first Wednesday of each month- so the next Directors meeting is on Sept 7th at 7:00pm- venue TBD! If you want to be signed up to the group for the purpose of working on a specific personal project, email me (Darcy) at

We will…
