What: The Washington DC Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH is presenting an encore showing of the Computer Animation Festival Showcase. If you missed the show at the Torpedo Factory Art Center, this is your chance to catch it again. The Computer Animation Festival showcases some of the most dazzling and innovative animations from 2016-2017, many of which were presented at the SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival. We will also discuss our upcoming events for 2018.
For those who are not familiar, the SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival is recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as a qualifying festival for the Academy Awards. Since 1999, several works originally presented in the Computer Animation Festival have been nominated for or have received a "Best Animated Short" Academy Award.
Please join us on Thursday, January 25, 2018 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as we showcase some of the best examples of computer animation from around the globe.
