The first ever 3D Web Fest is happening May 13th. It looks like it should be a lot of fun!
The 3D Web Fest is like a Film Festival - with a focus on the best of the 3D Web.
This event experience will showcase websites that are the best mixture of music, art and technology, and exhibit what's possible with the advent of 3D Web in a film festival format and club atmosphere. The Web has transitioned from mostly text to an increasingly rich 2D image environment, and now the shift to 3D has arrived enabled by new Web standards and open source technologies. The 3D Web Fest brings together the best of the 3D Web-presented live-amazing, delightful, surprising. By immersion in the world of 3D Web you'll experience what's possible for innovative commercial, non-commercial, experimental or game-based projects.
The selection committee - which includes Noah Cowan, the Executive Director of the San Francisco International Film Festival - poured over projects submitted from all over the world and selected works they feel will be truly eye-opening. The lineup of artists and producers will feature work from leading creative coders in the field including Isaac Cohen, Mate Steinforth, Weidong Yang, Goo Technologies and many others, showing their work through live screening presentations.
