3D Academy: 5-7 December 2011
Film Festival & Mart: 6-8 December 2011
Professional Forum: 7-9 December 2011
Scientific Conference: 8-9 December 2011
Where: Liebe, BELGIUM
3D Stereo MEDIA is an international event fully dedicated to all facets of “3D”.
The event is built around the four key components below, designed to fulfill the needs of most people interested in the scientific, technical, artistic, and/or business aspects of 3D.
The power of 3D Stereo MEDIA lies in the fact that it focuses on 3D, provides high-quality information, uses 3D visualization extensively, brings together scientists, engineers, artists, businessmen, and deciders, is supported by a major university and the local imaging industry.
This year, 3D Stereo MEDIA reinforces its offering by introducing a scientific conference, with appeal to researchers, and a 3D film market, with appeal to artists and investors.
Be sure to take part in this event, acclaimed as one of the world's top events fully dedicated to all aspects of 3D!
== DEADLINES ==
Submission of a project to the 3D Film Mart: 1 September. See Call for Projects.
3D Stereo MEDIA features a professional forum dedicated to all aspects of “3D” and providing pertinent, time-critical information for the practicing professional, with emphasis on the present and the near term.
The forum comprises a professional conference, an exhibition, technology demonstrations, workshops, and 3D-movie screenings. It also features a new 3D film co-production market called
and 3D movie screenings, where scientists, engineers, technicians, artists, movie directors and producers, communicators, educators, businessmen, investors, and end-users, all driven by their passion for stereoscopic and advanced 3D, gather and interact.
The domains of interest comprise (1) cinema and broadcast, (2) industry, engineering, design, science, medicine, defense, and R&D, (3) communication, education, and entertainment.
The forum makes maximal use of its S-3D projection capability on a 9 meter-base screen in the main 500 seat-auditorium, also generally equipped with advanced, naer-true 3D sound.

3D Stereo MEDIA features a new, international, scientific and engineering conference dedicated to the multidisciplinary topic of 3D imaging, with emphasis on the near to very-long term, and called
The International Conference on 3D Imaging (IC3D)
IC3D - to be pronounced “I see 3D” ... - conforms to the standards of major scientific and engineering conferences. Submitted papers are peered-reviewed; accepted papers are presented orally or as posters, and published in proceedings.
IC3D is the “Skunk Works” of 3D Stereo MEDIA. This is where research scientists and engineers thoroughly explore the principles, theories, physics, technologies, algorithms, mathematics, etc. of 3D imaging, and where many future marvels of x-3D are being conceived.
The conference rooms are equipped with S-3D visualization.
Please, submit your papers!
Film Festival & Mart
3D Stereo MEDIA features a 3D film festival. At its inception in 2009, the festival was the first of its kind in Europe, with formal competitions and significant awards. Since then, Ben Stassen, producer of “Fly Me To The Moon” and “Samy's Adventures” has been its president.
The primary ingredients of the festival are the S-3D films submitted to categories covering most genres of 3D-movie production. Each eligible film participates to the competition for its category. A jury determines the winners. The now famous “Perrons of Crystal” are awarded to the winners of selected categories.
The professionals present at 3D Stereo MEDIA will have opportunities to screen a selected set of the submitted movies.
The festival also has an appeal for the general public. Indeed, during 3D Stereo MEDIA, a commented selection of S-3D films, including some of those submitted, will be shown in a movie theater in downtown Liège.
To submit your film to the Film Festival, see Film Festival.
To submit your project to our Film Mart, see Film Mart.
3D Stereo MEDIA features a 3D Academy offering one or more small-group training sessions mostly dedicated to 3D film-making and 3D stereography.
The training sessions cover the hard, technical aspects of 3D-film making, as well as its softer, artistic aspects. The basic program consists of a balanced mix of lectures presenting the key concepts, of demonstrations using state-of-the-art equipments, and of commented screenings of excerpts of 3D films. In the more advanced program, the students also have a chance to get hands-on experience in using the equipments. The equipments used for teaching and/or experimentation comprise S-3D cameras, rigs, post-production equipment, and visualization means. A typical experiment involves S-3D captures, various adjustments of parameters, and a direct visualization of the effects on an S-3D screen or display.
The sessions should appeal to tools developers (engineers, ...) and end-users (artists, ...).
Stay tuned for the program!
