Connecting Ideas: FMX 2024 Returns Next April

The 28th edition, set for April 23-26, poses the question: Is the Media & Entertainment community moving closer together? Magnopus Global Director of Innovation Salomon Rogers named program chair.

FMX – Film & Media Exchange returns April 23 to 26, 2024 for the 28th edition of the conference on animation, effects, interactive, and immersive media. Plans are underway for another stellar program.

Organizers have shared their first update on what’s coming – here are the highlights:


The theme for 2024 is CONNECTING IDEAS, homing in on the question: Is the Media & Entertainment community moving closer together?

Look for discussions about the growing number of sharing platforms, open standards, and other initiatives that have emerged recently. And a special focus on cross-platform collaboration, pipelines, and distances – both physical and subjective – from interoperability to the disruptions shaking up film production.
