Ars Electronica Animation Film Festival October 1, 2014 | Film Screening | Austrian Cultural Forum
If you're interested in outstanding computer animated films as well as innovative media art, make sure you join us for this one of a kind event on October first. The Austrian Cultural Forum will show some of the award winning contributions to 2013's Ars Electronica Animation Festival. The Ars Electronica Animation Festival is a compilation selected from all entries to the 2013 Prix Ars Electronica's Computer Animation/Film/VFX category. It offers an overview of the positions and points of view of artists worldwide, and impressively documents not only the genre's explosive growth of late but also its marvelous substantive and stylistic diversity. 775 films from 73 countries were submitted for prize consideration in 2013. Even a quick perusal of the selected films reveals the broad spectrum of what's being produced now. Digital animation—sometimes recognizable as such, sometimes unidentifiably as a realistic simulation—increasingly pervades our everyday life. These computer-generated motion pictures appear in a diverse array of often hybrid forms in a very wide-ranging and interdisciplinary field at the nexus of art, industry, science and R&D.
