The Los Angeles Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH and the LA 3-D Club want you to participate in our non-competitive 3D Stereoscopic film festival. The LA 3-D Club (Stereo Club of Southern California) was established in the Greater Los Angeles area in 1955 by a dedicated group of 3D stereo photographers to further the art and science of stereoscopic photography and film. LA ACM SIGGRAPH was founded in 1980 for educational and scientific purposes relating to the field of computer graphics. With the resurgence of 3D Stereoscopy in the Digital Age, the partnership between these two seminal Los Angeles institutions presents a forum for both professional and independent home-brew 3D stereoscopic film makers to show their work to an appreciative audience on the big screen at the Downtown Independent Theater in Los Angeles. This is a call for participation. There are no entry fees. Members of the Los Angeles ACM SIGGRAPH Council will notify accepted entrants via email. Those artists whose works are chosen to appear in the screening will receive free admission to the event. Persons of any age may submit work and attend the event. The screening is scheduled for March, 2012. The submission deadline is March 5th, 2012. Submit your work as early as possible for consideration. Please visit this site for further information.
