About SIGGRAPHs Electronic Theater
Each year, the annual SIGGRAPH conference includes one internationally recognized showcase of the best computer graphics achievements from around the world. The Electronic Theater contains a selection of 16 juried works from a voluminous 635 submissions. The pieces were selected based on extremely high standards of creative and technical excellence.
The Electronic Theater is the world’s most prestigious film and video extravaganza, showcasing dazzling and innovative imagery in invited and submitted works selected by a distinguished jury of computer graphics experts and specialists. The works selected for this year’s Computer Animation Festival take us on a remarkable journey that combines the talent and brilliance of the current and future trends in art and science with the very best imagery depicting comedy, drama, romance, action, adventure, fantasy, science fiction, and science fact.
