Awards + Achievements

The Dublin Animation Film Festival received a Cathaoirleach's Award in 2013. The Festival was also nominated for an IIA Dot ie Net Visionary Award and a Local Area Management Award in 2015.


One of the most satisfying parts of my job is participating in the New Frontiers programme that is delivered by the Media Cube, in conjunction with DIT Hothouse, for Enterprise Ireland. I have witnessed several companies starting from the 'hot desk' room to employing over 30 people. The Media Cube offers a focused service to startup digital companies and we welcome enquiries from 'novice' entrepreneurs who are thinking of making 'the leap' to start their own digital business.
