Mark your calendars! From June 1 to 3, 2010, the Seine-Saint-Denis department, just north of Paris, will host the 4th edition of Dimension 3, the International Forum on S-3D image (stereoscopic) and new images, on an historical and symbolic venue: the Pullman Dock at the Plaine Saint-Denis studios, at the heart of the French audio-visual and new media industry main place.
Building on the success of its previous edition, the Forum will be the most important event of the year in Europe for the 3D and image industry.
A place for sharing, discovering and networking for companies who include S-3D into their development strategy but also for research labs, Dimension 3 2010 aims at being a must-attend event for engineers, producers, entrepreneurs, manufacturers and researchers on a variety of markets: cinema, TV, video games, communications, visualization, medicine…
Dimension 3 2010 offers a number of highlights for all professionals:
> 36 conferences and workshops over 3 days, gathering some sixty international experts from all sectors (scientists, developers, producers, artists, engineers, manufacturers, technicians, directors). Three conference rooms including a 500-seat auditorium will accommodate attendees.
> A 2,000+ m² exhibition area where manufacturers, publishers, contractors and producers will offer demonstrations and real-life product presentations.
> A Campus featuring bilingual training sessions designed for an international public with a MEDIA certification in 2010. The MEDIA support will further develop the training program’s ambitions and objectives. (in 2009, the Campus had gathered trainees from the USA, Europe and Asia, offering a series of training sessions on S-3D from filming to screening). The training session will be held from May 24 to 28, 2010.
> A film festival, Dimension 3 Festival, which in 2007 was the first international film event open to 3D films. In 2010 the festival further grows, now featuring a competition with 6 categories and 3 special prizes. The competing programmes (either the full version or clips) will be looped in an screening auditorium during the Forum.
Dimension 3 also develops a S-3D learning section open to the public:
3D films will be screened as a part of 3Discovery
The event will tour several cinemas in Seine-Saint-Denis throughout June (5 participating cinemas in 2009). A sponsored exhibition on the history of 3D will also be displayed in the cinemas’ halls.
One of the area’s most beautiful exhibition venues! Dimension 3 2010 will take place in the Pullman Docks, a building located at the heart of the Plaine Saint-Denis studios, where filming crews, technical contractors and producers from French TV all work together. By selecting this venue, the Forum’s organizing team opted not only for a famous and prestigious location, but also for the comfort of a 3,200 m² area with easy access.
