More About the Contest

The primary focus for this category is 3D Animation. The judges are looking for short films that are 100% computer generated. The films should be similar to what you’d expect to see from Pixar or Dreamworks. The films can still have a realistic feel to them, but if your film includes live-action plates please submit to the Visual Effects category instead.

Important Notes:

  • The judges will be reviewing complete short film or trailers, not assets or other elements that will be used in a film that hasn’t been released yet.
  • If your film in currently doing the rounds in a Short Film Festival, please include a password so the judges can view your work privately.

An amazing round to choose from. The European films are amazing. Such a discrepancy in the level of work between countries. But loved all the work here. Each is unique in it's own way and all were interesting to watch.

Am truly impressed by the level of talent. It was really hard to choose, overall I had to take the full aspect from story, animation, image quality, compositing into account when choosing my Top 5.
