The 4-day hybrid event returns to Stuttgart with 1-day devoted to online presentations from around the world; BAFTA-winning and Oscar-nominated producer Jinko Gotoh serves as the next program chair.

FMX 2023 hybrid edition dates have been set, with the even running on-site in Stuttgart April 25-27 with an exclusive online day, April 28, featuring presentations from around the globe. In addition, FMX welcomes a new program chair, BAFTA-winning and Oscar-nominated producer Jinko Gotoh.

Under the theme EVOLVING, FMX 2023 will highlight projects and processes addressing challenges faced by people and the planet, including the latest developments in the art, technology, and the business of animation, visual effects, and interactive and immersive media.

Gotoh hails from the animation industry with producing credits that include 2020 BAFTA winner and Oscar-nominated Klaus, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, The Little Prince, Oscar-nominated The Illusionist, 9, and Oscar-winning Finding Nemo. In addition, she serves as vice president for Women in Animation and, as a member of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, represents diversity and inclusion on various committees.

“I'm honored to be the program chair for FMX 2023,” shared Gotoh. “While I participated virtually in past conferences, I look forward to being there in person next year. Sustainability as a theme resonates with me on multiple levels, from how we engage and find best practices with our environment to the ever-changing industry.”

“Our industry is global, and the pandemic has brought us closer together,” she continues. “So, how do we sustain and improve upon what we have experienced in the past couple of years? I hope to bring in speakers from around the globe who are familiar with and new to FMX and make time to blue-sky a sustainable future.”
