The International 3D Festival (I3DF) is an international film festival fully dedicated to "3D contents", i.e. to stereoscopic-3D (S-3D) film and VR content. It brings together the full spectrum of people sharing the passion for such 3D contents.

I3DF features competitions, awards, and screenings (with many open to the general public).

I3DF features two types of awards:

  • "Lumiere Awards" from the Advanced Imaging Society based in Hollywood, CA, available for eligible contents from Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa (EMENA), and recognizing contents;
  • "3D Guild Awards" from the 3D Guild (3DG) based in Brussels, Belgium, available for eligible contents from anywhere the world, and recognizing individuals.

A given content may compete for both types of awards if it is eligible for each independently.

The awards are given out during the Awards ceremony that is the final fireworks of 3D Stereo MEDIA.

Whom for?

For (1) artists, directors, and producers from all over the world who want to compete and have their work featured, (2) all professional attendees of 3D Stereo MEDIA interested in discovering and enjoying new S-3D contents, and (3) the general public, invited to attend screenings specifically designed for it.

When & where?

On 13-15 December at Théâtre de Liège.

How to participate?

By submitting one or more entries, attending screenings, and/or being present at the Awards ceremony.
