NYC - March 3 -SIGGRAPH 2008 Computer Animation Festival
On Tuesday, March 3, 2009, at 7:00PM, NYC ACM SIGGRAPH is proud to present a portion of the SIGGRAPH 2008 Computer Animation Festival.
The SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival (CAF) 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 screening will take place at FIT's Haft Auditorium. FIT's campus is located on West 27th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. The Haft Auditorium is located in Building C - on the north side of 27th Street approximately halfway in from either 7th or 8th Avenues.
The SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival is internationally recognized and lauded as an event that serves to engage and inspire artists, scientists, engineers, designers, and students to harness the power of the digital image to explore the boundlessness of imagination. Last year's festival represented a change in structure from the previous CAFs with the departure of the Electronic Theater. But the CAF remains unrivaled as the premiere location for the world's best computer generated imagery.
Admission for this event is, as always, free to all NYC ACM SIGGRAPH Members. It is also free for all FIT Faculty, Students, and Staff. For non-members, admission is $10; for non-member students (with a current student ID) it is $5.
We are very fortunate to be able to screen a special version of last years' CAF. This is an extraordinary opportunity for anyone that was not able to attend SIGGRAPH 2008. And if you did make it to SIGGRAPH 2008, here is a unique opportunity to relive one of the most exciting venues from last year's conference. Admittance to a single CAF Screening at the conference is $50 so this is also a tremendous bargain
