Tickets are available as first come first served and are limited to 100 seats.

About the event

Since 2006 Digital Storytelling, together with its partners has delivered world class seminars, masterclasses and workshops on the creative use of technology in film, television and games.

While ten years ago little VFX work was done  in feature films and television in Norway, this year's event celebrates the work of Norwegian VFX professionals on a wide range of projects. From the international blockbuster “Pixels” with work by Storm Studios, to the Norwegian Academy Award candidate film “The Wave” with VFX by Gimpville  as well as the celebrated TV series “The Heavy Water War” and “Occupied” with visual effects by Storyline Studios, and the viral online hit and one-man production “Dawn of the Planet of the Zombies and Giant Killer Plants on Some Serious Acid” by Alf Løvvold.

The event is arranged with the support of Westerdals Oslo School of Arts, Communication and Technology and NFI:LAB at the Norwegian Film Institute.
