ACM SIGGRAPH 1991 - Call for Films, Videos, or Alternate Media submissions
SIGGRAPH's annual conference is a premier showcase for the world's
most advanced, uniquely creative, and innovative computer animations
for film videos, and alternate media. As in the past, the goals of
the show are technical excellence, innovation, aesthetic quality, and
At SIGGRAPH '91, the electronic theatre, gallery, and showcase
will continue the tradition of excellence established in previous
years with an additional dimension: a thematic component. Without
restricting the scope or creativity of the entries, the electronic
theatre jury is especially encouraging submissions of films, videos,
and alternate media that focus on environmental concerns and ideas.
We hope to demonstrate how these media can promote the healthy
survival of the world and its peoples.
The Electronic Theatre -
Culminating a year of work in computer animation, the electronic
theatre is a highlight of each SIGGRAPH conference. For old friends,
peers, and those new to the industry, it's a chance to enjoy the
world's most stunning and sophisticated computer graphics animation.
It's an international celebration of outstanding computer animation in
art, television, motion pictures, corporate communications, education,
industry, research, and science.
The Electronic Gallery -
With a uniquely designed setting, the electronic gallery enlarges our
show to include media beyond traditional film and video: HDTV,
large-screen formats, 3D stereoscopic display, and interactive
animation systems. Unlike the theatre, the gallery displays works
according to discipline categories in the original media.
The Electronic Showcase -
The electronic showcase provides an environment designed to display
longer animations, newly completed works, and historical footage.
The committee is looking for pioneering works which will make
this electronic forum a dynamic cross-section of many disciplines. We
encourage entries from the widest possible range of people who use
computer animation. A jury of industry professionals will select the
entries for the electronic theatre, the gallery, and the showcase.
Film and video animations must be submitted to the jury by
1 May 1991. Proposals for formats other than film and video must be
submitted by 12 December 1990. The electronic theatre contributor's
packet provides helpful information about length, acceptable media,
and the jury process.
