The Computer Animation Festival, celebrating its 40th year, just released a sneak peak into the amazing content that will be present this year in Anaheim. The 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. This year’s selections will be featured during the Computer Animation Festival through a series of daily Festival Screenings and the iconic Electronic Theater, allowing attendees to get a glimpse behind the making of computer-generated effects, visualizations, and animations.
“Every piece in the festival has something that made it stand out from the 40 hours of content submitted for this year’s show,” says Jason RM Smith, SIGGRAPH 2013 Computer Animation Festival Chair. “There’s no other venue in the world comparable to the Computer Animation Festival; each year we’re honored by the amazing number of high-quality entries and every year the show grows. This year we’re screening 10% more content; as the quality continues to improve it becomes increasingly difficult to select the best of the best.”
