Request a screening of the SIGGRAPH 2020 Computer Animation Festival Electronic Theater Traveling Show

Welcome Media!

Recent news and concerns about the health and safety of conference participants has made it impossible to host SIGGRAPH 2020 in Washington, D.C. as planned. Thus, we have decided to move to a virtual conference format. Visit Health and Safety for the latest update.

Details on this new virtual experience are in the works and we are confident that we will deliver a strong conference that celebrates this year’s advancements and achievements in computer graphics and interactive techniques. Media registration remains open.
