Next Event: CGI Friday - 19/10/18 @ 20:00
Location: Via Via, Wolstraat 43, 2000 Antwerpen

The Event

CGI Fridays take the place of our MUG / 3D Meetup for people in the creative industry. Everyone doing anything 3D, VFX and Motion Design is invited to join us. We’ll be meeting in a pub in Antwerp where they serve some excellent Belgian beers to get the ball rolling.

It serves to be an informal event where we can all get together, chat about what we’re doing and hang out with like minded people.

We do ask that you register for free on our Eventbrite page, this way we can anticipate the number of people a little better.

The Organizers

CGIF was started by Midge Sinnaeve (The Mantissa) and Johan Belmans (Belly). Both artists have around for a while in the CG Industry. Wanting to give back to the CG community by sharing their experiences and bringing people together, CGIF was created. Previously, these event were named MUG and 3D Meetup. The new concept stems from a desire to include more artists, so we’d like to welcome everyone doing anything 3D, VFX and Motion Design to join us and hang out.

We’re aiming to meet regularly on Friday nights in Antwerp. Locations and dates will be announced on this website, and our Twitter and Facebook pages. We will offer some drinks and talk about nerdy computer stuff. The aim is to create relaxed environment where we can share our collective experiences and start building an open community for creatives. In the future, we’d like to organize more elaborate events, but we’ll talk about those more once we get there. ;)

Past Events

CGIF has been around for a few years under different names. The last of our 2017 events was in October. We're always excited to see more and new people joining us.

Starting with our first event in 2018 we'll be introducing an industry speaker at the start of each session for a quick talk to get the ball rolling. Be sure to come and check it out.
