FMX 2017 - International Conference on Animation, Effects, VR, Games and Transmedia

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.

FMX is one of the world’s premier conferences to meet with the most influential players in the field. The overall organization and the intimate yet international size of the event offer professionals and students from the digital arts communities a great platform to mingle, network, and share insights about Art, Technologies and Business, at the highest level.

Join the club! FMX 2017 takes place May 2-5, 2017 in Stuttgart, Germany.

Tulsa International Film Festival

The Tulsa International Film Festival is now accepting entries.

PLASTIC PAPER: WINNIPEG'S ANIMATION FESTIVAL

PLASTIC PAPER: WINNIPEG'S FESTIVAL OF ANIMATED, ILLUSTRATED + PUPPET FILM is an international festival that takes place May 4-7, 2011 at the Park Theatre in Winnipeg, Canada. The festival is one component of the year-round organizational activities of the Big Smash! Film Collective. PLASTIC PAPER’s programming is a mix of premieres, retrospective screenings, short films and features with special guests, workshops, multi-media presentations, installations and exhibits, artist talks, and gatherings where the artists and the audience can interact more informally.

PLASTIC PAPER is currently accepting submissions for short and feature-length animated films made after Jan. 1, 2010.  THERE IS NO ENTRY FEE. DEADLINE: Feb 1, 2011. Download the entry form at www.plastic-paper.org 

 

About PLASTIC PAPER:

PLASTIC PAPER started in 2008 as a mini-program curated by Kier-La Janisse and Dave Barber, and hosted by the Winnipeg Cinematheque before branching out into an independent event. PLASTIC PAPER 2008 featured the Manitoba premieres of Bill Plympton's IDIOTS AND ANGELS, Nina Paley's multi-award winning SITA SINGS THE BLUES, John Bergin's apocalyptic FROM INSIDE and much more. Special guests have included BILL PLYMPTON, HEATHER HENSON and curator NAOMI HOCURA.

PLASTIC PAPER is unique in Winnipeg as an event that serves to explore the animated output of different regions and cultural communities around the world. With an emphasis on self-made work and a careful balance of accessible and experimental animation styles, PLASTIC PAPER’s presentation and outreach offerings serve to educate, enlighten and inspire Winnipeg’s burgeoning roster of independent animators, who will benefit greatly from the international programming as well as personal interaction with visiting international filmmakers.

Many of the featured works come in a variety of animation styles with sometimes challenging subject matter; although some films are kid-friendly, PLASTIC PAPER is mainly geared towards adult animation fans as well as animators themselves. The programming is widely eclectic, but shows a preference for independently-financed films, films with an adult sensibility, and films using traditional methods of animation, such as 2-D illustration, cut-outs and stop-motion. The festival also showcases films about animators or illustrators, as well as puppetry films. The connecting thread in the programming is that all selections celebrate the labour-intensity, the obsessiveness, and the unique personalities of these very hands-on crafts.
