Computer Animation Festival

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 Electronic Theater. For SIGGRAPH 2017, the festival is moving beyond the flat screen to present short films and experiences in a new space, the VR Theater, where attendants will experience the next generation of storytelling in virtual reality.

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.

Electronic Theater and VR Theater Listings

New for 2017, the Computer Animation Festival will host two separate Director Q&A sessions featuring directors from both the Electronic Theater and VR theaters on Wednesday, 2 August. Each sessions will give attendees the chance to have an open dialogue with the creators behind the work.
