About CGIF vzw

CGIF vzw was started out of a need to connect with other artists.

Before CGIF vzw, CGI Fridays were first organized as the Max User Group (MUG) in Antwerp by Johan Belmans. After a number of years, Midge Sinnaeve joined and the decision was made to expand the event further than just 3ds Max users to the local CG community and CGI Fridays were born.

From here Midge and Johan had talked about doing a larger event, but that finally materialized when Robin Sinnaeve and Mats Lemmens joined to form the non-profit CGIF vzw. Currently, CGIF vzw is also the organizing body behind DAC-ANT, a digital art conference in Antwerpen, Belgium.
