Blender Events in 2022

2022 is a big year for Blender, celebrating 20 years of being Open Source and the return to big events to connect with the community and the industry.

Annecy Festival

13-18th June – Annecy, France

Annecy 2022

The first large event of the year with Blender presence will be the Annecy Festival. Just like in 2018, Blender will have its own booth at MIFA (14-17th June).

Part of the Blender Studio team will be present as this will be the first time an Open Movie project (Sprite Fright) gets nominated for the Annecy International Animation Film Festival (FIFA)! 

Moreover, students of the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional created an alternate score of the open movie Spring. Interpreted by an orchestra during the festival on the 16th (Thursday), at 7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. at Cine Concert, Annecy Castle Museum.

Annecy is a great opportunity to connect with studios and individual artists. In 2018, a large crowd gathered to see the Grease Pencil demos by Daniel Martinez Lara, way before the improvements in 2.80. This year Daniel will join the team once again to demo the Storyboarding workflow. A meetup with Blender professionals will be organized, stay tuned for more info on social media.

We can’t wait to see what people are creating with Blender nowadays!

The largest conference for computer graphics is back, and Blender will once again be part of it as it has since 1999.
