Since its humble beginnings as an event for students of the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg in 1994, FMX has developed into one of the world’s most
influential conferences dedicated to media & entertainment creation. In presentations and discussions, media creators from around the world share their
projects and processes, from the latest content to new tools, pipelines, and business models. Their contributions are complemented by the Marketplace,
an exhibition room where visitors get hands-on experiences of innovations from industry-leading companies and start-ups. Workshops, masterclasses and company suites dive even deeper into the latest advancements. Rounding off the offers on site, a large number of global studios scout talent at the Recruiting
Hub, and international film and media schools present their programs and projects at the School Campus. With its international yet intimate atmosphere, FMX offers professionals and students a unique platform to mingle, network, and share insights on the art, technology and business of media & entertainment.
FMX is funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and Arts and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Tourism of the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg, the
City of Stuttgart, and MFG Baden-Wuerttemberg, taking place in cooperation with ACM Siggraph. FMX is organized by the Filmakademie Baden Wuerttemberg, hosting the Animation Production Days (APD), a joint venture with the Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film (ITFS).
