NYC ACM SIGGRAPH and New York Film Academy Are Proud to Present . . .

 

 

The two ACM SIGGRAPH conferences, SIGGRAPH and SIGGRAPH Asia, feature Computer Animation Festivals (CAFs) that are internationally recognized and lauded as events that serve to engage and inspire artists, scientists, engineers, designers, and students to harness the power of the digital image to explore the boundlessness of imagination. The SIGGRAPH CAF is one of the world's most prestigious film and video extravaganzas, showcasing dazzling and innovative imagery in invited and submitted works selected by a distinguished jury of computer graphics experts and specialists. The SIGGRAPH Electronic Theater is always one of the highlights at each year's conference.

NYC ACM SIGGRAPH and NYFA are proud to present the SIGGRAPH 2014 Computer Animation Festival (CAF) Electronic Theater on Thursday, November 13, 2014 at 7:00 pm. We are very fortunate to be able to screen a very special version of the Electronic Theater from the SIGGRAPH 2014 Conference held in Vancouver, British Columbia this past August. This is an extraordinary opportunity for anyone that was not able to attend SIGGRAPH 2014. The over two hour showcase will present dozens of the best computer animated films culled from around the world. This is an extraordinary opportunity for anyone that was not able to attend SIGGRAPH 2014. SIGGRAPH 2014 representative Mikki Rose will present the festival. Rose is the Co-Director of the SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival for 2015 and assisted in the jurying and creation of the SIGGRAPH 2014 CAF show. 

 
The SIGGRAPH 2014 Computer Animation Festival presented submissions from eight categories: Computer Animation Shorts, Games, Animated Feature Films, Visual Effects for Live-Action Feature Films, Real-Time Graphics, Student Projects, TV/Web Commercials, Animation, Visual Effects & Music Videos, and Visualizations and Simulations.  SIGGRAPH received the best new computer generated, short film work from movie studios, schools, commercial studios, game studios, independent producers, students and other organizations.

For the SIGGRAPH 2014 Computer Animation Festival Electronic Theater, an internationally recognized jury selected 30 out of over 500 entries from around the world for outstanding achievements in time-based art, scientific visualization, visual effects, real-time graphics, and narrative shorts. The SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival is recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as a qualifying festival. Since 1999, several works originally presented in the Computer Animation Festival have been nominated for, or have received, a Best Animated Short Academy Award.
 
Admission for this event is free but donations will be accepted. NYC ACM SIGGRAPH is a non-profit organization so we rely heavily on the fees we charge at our events in order to continue producing activities such as these.
