Best of CAF Screening - 2015

Wed, 09/09/2015

The Traveling Electronic Theater from SIGGRAPH 2015 is coming to our chapter in September. This reel comprises the best shorts from the Electronic Theater and Computer Animation Festival. 20 hours of shorts and excerpts featuring the latest and greatest in Computer Animation are presented here in this approximately 90 minute film.

Description

The SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival is the leading annual festival for the world's most innovative, accomplished, and amazing digital film and video creators. An internationally recognized jury receives hundreds of submissions and presents the best work of the year in the two programs of the Computer Animation Festival, Daytime Selects and the Electronic Theater. Selections include outstanding achievements in animated feature and short films, scientific visualization, visual effects, real-time graphics, game excerpts, and much more!

The 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.

By special arrangement with ACM SIGGRAPH, we will be screening the SIGGRAPH 2015 Traveling Electronic Theater. This is the best-of from the Computer Animation Festival and includes shorts not shown in the SIGGRAPH show.
