Date: Thursday, October 4, 2018, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

The Washington DC Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH (the ACM Special Interest Group for Graphics in Washington DC) is partnering with the Torpedo Factory Art Center to host a Computer Animation Showcase. The Computer Animation Showcase represents some of the most dazzling and innovative animations from students and professionals around the world. Several of the animations were screened at the 2018 SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival.

For those who have not had the opportunity to attend a SIGGRAPH conference, the SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival, a highlight of the conference, 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, October 4, 2018 from 7pm to 9pm at the Torpedo Factory Art Center as we showcase some of the best examples of computer animation from around the globe.

Let’s Do Lunch!

Register on EventBrite

We’re getting together to celebrate the inauguration of our new Meetup group and the new job of one of our members, Sean Stevenson, in Crystal City. We’ve chosen Good Stuff Eatery as the place to nosh because of it’s amazing Urbanspoon reviews and the fact that the Washingtonian magazine reports that it’s Obama-approved, not to mention that it’s a four-minute walk from the Crystal City Metro station on the Blue and Yellow lines.

Although each of us will pay towards the tab and there’s no other cost to pay on EventBrite, RSVP so that we know how large of a table to reserve.

Consider joining our new Meetup group

Hope you can make it! Members and not-yet-members welcome!
