Every spring, running at the same time as the Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film (ITFS), FMX – Conference on Animation, Effects, Games and Immersive Media usually attracts the international professional audience to Stuttgart. However, 2021 will be a very special edition of FMX: For the first time, professionals and students from all over the world will gather virtually at FMX 2021 Online (May 4 – 6, 2021).


Live experiences in virtual times

The 25th anniversary of FMX will be special in every way: the first online edition of FMX will feature an entirely virtual conference program dedicated to the central theme of “ReImagine Tomorrow.”

Over three conference days, FMX will invite exceptional media creators to share their insights with an audience of professionals and students on a virtual event platform. To make sure that the community will have room for personal exchange, live Q&A will complement all presentations.

Following FMX, presentation recordings will be available to ticket holders via video-on-demand until July 2021.


FMX 2021 – A Conference ReImagined

With its central theme “ReImagine Tomorrow”, FMX 2021 reflects on how work in the industry has been disrupted in unprecedented ways. While remote and virtual workflows are adopted around the globe, visions for the entertainment of the future are giving way to questions about the future of entertainment. With every aspect of education, production and distribution affected, we are all being challenged to reinvent ourselves. FMX 2021 will look into these new experiences with presentations and discussions on how to adjust our processes and priorities, as we reaimagine tomorrow.

FMX is one of the world’s most influential digital entertainment conferences and is organized by Animationsinstitut at Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg.

See you at FMX 2021!
