Find out who is going to FMX this year and browse different presentations, workshops and screenings
FMX, which is run by the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg and organised by the Institute of Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Postproduction, was initiated as an event for students labelled ‘Film and Media Exchange’ (FMX) in 1994.
Since it’s inception, FMX has kept up with the developments and trends of the CG industry and has grown to become one of the stand-out conferences for those working with digital imagery.
Even if you just glance at the FMX programme, you’ll see the scope of the conference is absolutely massive.
Variety is the spice of FMX
This year you’ll enjoy talks on VFX extravaganzas such as John Carter and presentations on blockbusters like the upcoming Men in Black sequel, MIB III, plus animation highlights like Ice Age 4, Madagascar 3 and Arthur Christmas, as well as presentations on the popular games series SSX and Mortal Kombat.
