PIXELvienna Animationfestival is part of the Annual Austrian Computer Graphics and Animation Conference PIXELvienna taking place in the beautiful setting of Vienna. Providing international perspectives, talks, workshops.

Every year, PIXELvienna invites well-known national and international computer graphics, computer games and computer film professionals to present their work. Since 2005 artists, producers, and directors from very diverse backgrounds shared their passion and knowledge.
PIXELvienna arose from the drive to connect computer graphics professionals and to build a community to share experience and knowledge. While PIXELvienna grew over the past years, the original idea is still the same: “From the community, for the community!”
PIXELvienna is entirely organized and operated by the Austrian digital creators community, a team of volunteers who deliberately work all year to make the conference an unforgettable experience for all attendees. Being an international event, the official conference language is English.

In 2014 we decided to rename the conference from simply “PIXEL” to “PIXELvienna” in order to further underline the great location of this conference and prevent confusion with similar named conferences.

There will be awards and prizes for two categories, student and professional or national and international, depending on the submissions.
All submission fees will be used as award cash prizes. Additional awards might be sponsored by companies.

Films can be submitted to PIXELvienna Animation Filmfestival if they correspond to the definition
of animation formulated by the International Animated Film Association, ASIFA: ”the art of
animation is the creation of moving images through the manipulation of all variety of techniques apart from live action methods”.
