The Computer Animation / Film / VFX Prix Forum will deal with developments in the animation field. With Gerfried Stocker (AT), Boris Labbé (FR), Yuya Hanai (JP), Mari-Liis Rebane (EE) and Johannes Schiehsl (AT).
The Ars Electronica Animation Festival screens a selection of the most outstanding animated works honored by the Prix Ars Electronica jury in recognition of their substantive and stylistic quality. This lineup impressively gets across how the genre itself has flourished of late and the extent to which it now pervades our everyday life. The CENTRAL on Landstraße in the heart of downtown Linz is the epicenter of media art in the form of multifaceted motion pictures. And for all those looking for a place to get their minds off worlds of imagery for a while, this is also a great spot to kick back and hang out.
The fourth annual Expanded Animation symposium is entitled The Alchemy of Animation in keeping with the 2016 Festival theme, RADICAL ATOMS and the alchemists of our time.
More than 1,300 works were submitted for prize consideration in the 2016 Prix Ars Electronica’s Computer Animation / Film / VFX category. These entries are the basis on which we’ve compiled the 15 programs that make up this year’s Ars Electronica Animation Festival, a cross-section of the world of digital filmmaking today and its tremendous aesthetic, substantive and technical diversity.
