DIMENSION3 2009, The Forum for the 3D markets

For its third edition, Dimension 3 will be held in Seine-saint-Denis, a region that strongly supports 3D research and production. This move will help the Forum to implement an animation plan in favour of the markets convergence.

From June 2nd to 4th 2009, Dimension 3 invites all the actors and professionals of the cinema, TV, video games, entertainment, communication or training industries to one of the most important events of the 3D industry in the world.

Displayed in the Centre National de la Danse in Pantin (5mn from Paris), this unique-in-Europe event is a meeting point for worldwide visitors. For 3 days, they will evaluate the maturity of the creation and visualization solutions dedicated to the 3D images and their application programs. This year, a space for the 3D production promotion will be added to the Dimension 3 professional exhibition area. In this Espace CREA the producers will present 3D content and their know-how. Added to those areas dedicated to professionals, Dimension 3 Immersion, an area for the visual experimentation, will be devoted to video games, the telephony but also to the 3D marketing tools and will be open to a broader audience. A good opportunity for all to discover, test and try all the 3D novelties!

Moreover, 60 international experts will be gathered at the International Forum dedicated to 3D images. They will talk about technological, creative and economic topics in Dimension 3 conferences and Master classes.

Display window of the international 3D production, Dimension 3 third edition will carry on its entertaining and didactic ambitions thanks to the Festival traveling to Seine Saint-Denis, and to Dimension 3 Discovery, an exhibition about the 3D technologies history.

Supporting the 3D development, Dimension 3 also offers bilingual trainings and helps the emergence of young designers or directors through the Writing Talent Grant.
