Bucharest, you’ve heard about it, eventually – a city for young people. Well known for different things – like “Old Paris” nickname, in its bourgeois times, before the communism decades, or the world’s biggest parliamentary building [and one of the largest buildings of any kind], from its communism times new arhitecture, or the explosive contemporary art scene, and the also quite impressive underground arts and music and nightlife communities, in its current times.
FMX is Europe’s most influential conference dedicated to Digital Visual Arts, Technologies, and Business. In 2017, FMX takes place under the slogan "Beyond the Screen", focusing on how we, as a society, experience content now and in the near future. FMX will explore the evolution from the 2D screen to 3D screen to IMAX and Domes. What's more, it will also focus on storytelling beyond the movie theater, including VR and AR, 360° projects, location-based entertainment, geo-localization, interactive and installative screenings and more. However, FMX will not only look at the technological aspects of this evolution. Instead, it will also take into account the broader, societal implications: This year's theme is a call for open-mindedness and awareness, encouraging each and every one of us to look beyond the screen and to think outside the box.
Every year, VFX specialists, Animation experts as well as Games and Transmedia talents come to FMX to present cutting edge achievements, state of the art tools and pipelines, fascinating real time technologies, spectacular immersive experiences, innovative business models and more. More recently they have been joined by VR, AR, and 360° creatives who have introduced a new dimension into movie making and, more general, into entertainment. Every single one of them defines the diverse scope of the Conference program. Their contributions are complemented by the Marketplace that allows visitors to get their hands on the latest innovations of industry-leading companies and start-ups. Workshops, Masterclasses and Company Suites dig even deeper into the learnings of international companies. To round things off, top-notch studios and service providers scout talent at the Recruiting Hub and international schools present their best projects on the School Campus.
