ABOUT THE EVENT

The SIGGRAPH 2019 Computer Animation Festival features a selection of innovative animated short films and visual effects reels produced by professionals and students from around the world. These were originally shown as part of the SIGGRAPH 2019 Computer Animation Festival, a leading annual festival for the world’s most groundbreaking, accomplished, and amazing digital film creators.

The content, in its original form, premiered during SIGGRAPH 2019, 28 July–1 August, in Los Angeles. The annual festival is a qualifying event for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Academy Awards.

Since 1999, several works originally presented in the SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival have gone on to be nominated for or receive the Best Animated Short Film Oscar.

This event is free for San Francisco ACM SIGGRAPH Members. There is still time to become a member and attend the show for free.
