Ever since our early days, CGA has been known as a best place for networking,  knowledge-sharing and honest discussion. And what better way to do just that, than providing a platform for discussion panels.

Here’s a list of topics to be discussed in front of a live audience at MTS Dvorana on September 24th.


Complete schedule

Remodeling the Cooperation Between Art and Technology 

Track: CGAlliance

Moldova, Lithuania, Serbia and Ireland have pushed for clustering in the creative sector and have been building their national brands in animation, gaming, film, visual effects and XR. With the changing industry landscape it is time to reconsider the cooperation models that bring art and technology closer in the vision of future creativity.

The panel will discuss the idea of bringing different audiovisual and media subsectors work together. How important role clustering could bring in international positioning and export promotion for small national markets? 

Moderator: Milica Božanić, Executive Director at Serbia Film Commission (co-founder of CGA)
Relja Bobic, SGA/Creative Tech Serbia
Vasili Braga, Executive Director of Creative Industry Cluster Moldova
Kestutis Drazdauskas, Baltic Film and Creative Tech Cluster

With this panel, we celebrate CGA being a part of the Creative Tech Serbia Supercluster.

Track: CGAcademy

In this panel, we will discuss how software development will affect education in the near future.

People from different branches of the creative industries, as well as university professors, will talk about education, including various training opportunities for both students and young people entering the creative industries, and also adults who are retraining or simply in need of new tools. 

No matter if you’re looking for a career path in VFX, game art, video design, motion capture or any CG-related field, conclusions from this discussion will provide you great source of information.
