Attend the NYC ACM SIGGRAPH Animation Festival at NYFA

November 12, 2014


The New York Film Academy Animation School is proud to team up with the NYC ACM SIGGRAPH to present the SIGGRAPH 2014 Computer Animation Festival “Electronic Theater” this Thursday, November 13, 2014 at 7:00pm in the 4th Floor Screening Room at NYFA’s Union Square location.
ACM SIGGRAPH is an international organization of artists, filmmakers, developers, and scientists sharing a love of computer graphics and interactive technology. The New York City chapter hosts events such as screenings, lectures, BYOA (Bring Your Own Animation), and MetroCAF, an annual student film festival. The SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival is one of the world’s most prestigious film and video extravaganzas, showcasing 30 out of over 500 entries from around the world.

Thursday’s event is an extraordinary opportunity for those interested in computer animation that were unable to attend the actual SIGGRAPH Festival 2014 in Vancouver this past August. The over two hour showcase will present dozens of the best computer animated films culled from around the world with 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.

Please join us at 7:00pm sharp! Admission is free for this event but donations will be accepted. NYC AM SIGGRAPH is a non-profit organization so typical event fees and your donations allow them to continue producing activities such as these.
