The Toronto ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter had the pleasure of screening the SIGGRAPH 2017 Computer Animation Festival Travelling Show on May 16th, 2018.
A fantastic group of students and professionals came to the event to enjoy the best animation and VFX work from SIGGRAPH 2017, as well as an engaging talk by Alain Chesnais (former ACM and ACM SIGGRAPH President).
The Computer Animation Festival Travelling Show recognizes amazing work, from VFX breakdowns by major studios to short animated student projects, chosen by a jury of internationally recognized professionals. Since 1999, several works originally presented at SIGGRAPH have been nominated for or have received a Best Animated Short Academy Award.
The screening was followed by a relaxed networking event where enthusiastic animation-lovers were able to connect and discuss the screening, SIGGRAPH and more.
