Washington DC Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH hosts the 44th Annual SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival Showcase at the Torpedo Factory Art Center. This festival showcases a collection of some of the most dazzling and innovative works, selected by a distinguished jury of computer-graphics experts and specialists.
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 or awarded an Academy Award for Best Animated Short.
In the words of CAF Director Jerome Solomon, “There’s no other stage in the world comparable to SIGGRAPH’s Computer Animation Festival.”
This is presented as part of the Torpedo Factory Art Center’s Community Partnership Program.
