Only the top 30 pieces of work - from more than 500 submitted from all over the world - made it into this year’s Computer Animation Festival. SIGGRAPH received the best new computer generated, short film work from movie studios, schools, commercial studios, game studios, independent producers, students and other organizations.

The festival presents 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.

For the SIGGRAPH 2014 Computer Animation Festival, 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.
