Experience the Next Generation of Storytelling
The SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festivall started as an annual showcase of advances in computer graphics; and since then has come to celebrate the rise of computer graphics as a medium for storytelling, not just in animation, but also in visual effects for movies and games.
The event is recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as a qualifying festival. An internationally recognized jury receives hundreds of submissions and presents the best work of the year, with awards for Best in Show, Jury’s Choice and Best Student Project. Since 1999, several works that were originally presented in the Computer Animation Festival have been nominated for or have received a Best Animated Short Academy Award.
The festival seeks work that educates, entertains and/or informs.
