Character Animation and Animation/Visual Effects Premieres

Saturday, April 15, 2023 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

FREE! Enjoy a series of award-winning short, animated films from students in the graduate and undergraduate programs in the School of Visual Arts and Design.

Presented by the School of Visual Arts & Design (SVAD), visitors will view student-created animated films from the past three years of the Emerging Media BFA Character Animation track and the Emerging Media MFA in Animation and Visual Effects track. This two-part event also offers a Q&A with the animators.

Six short films that have already garnered hundreds of acceptances and awards in film festivals around the world will be screened first. These were created by students who earned a highly competitive BFA degree in Emerging Media: Character Animation.

These will be followed by screenings of the thesis works from students who have earned an Animation and Visual Effects MFA. This terminal degree offers students the opportunity for self-expression by creation of their own work while mastering their skills in these areas.

Each spring, UCF hosts a large-scale celebration of creativity at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. This year, UCF Celebrates the Arts explores the intersection of arts and technology, and showcases our students, faculty and alumni through dance, concerts, cabaret, lectures and discussions, film, chamber music, family-friendly events, visual arts and more. The festival has events and exhibits for all ages and interests, and with half of the events being free, is an ideal opportunity to try something new. Fantastic possibilities lie ahead at UCF Celebrates the Arts, April 2-15 at Dr. Phillips Center! Learn more at
