Evening Theater

Monday - Thursday, 3 - 6 August, 6:30 - 9 pm, La Nouvelle Orleans Ballroom

The Evening Theater includes three categories of exceptional creative work:

  • Live demos of outstanding real-time work.
  • The Juried Reel, work selected by the Computer Animation Festival Jury from hundreds of international submissions.
  • The Curated Reel, work invited by the Computer Animation Festival Chair.

Each Evening Theater show includes the same material. On Monday and Wednesday, the Juried Reel is shown first, followed by the Curated Reel. The order of presentation is reversed on Tuesday and Thursday:

Monday & Wednesday
6:30 pm Real-Time
7 pm: Juried Reel
8 pm: Curated Reel

Tuesday & Thursday
6:30 pm Real-Time
7 pm: Curated Reel
8 pm: Juried Reel

Short breaks after each segment allow attendees to come and go. Those with multi-day passes may extend their viewing of the Evening Theater over several days.

Evening Theater shows begin with 30-minute demos of outstanding achievements in real-time graphics:

Flower
DT4 Identity SA 1.7
Froblins
Fight Night 4

On Monday night, the Evening Theater begins with presentations of this year's Computer Animation Festival Awards: Best of Show (which qualifies the winner to be considered for nomination in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Best Animated Short Film category), the Jury Award, Best Student Film, the WTF Prize, and Honorary Mentions.
