After a successful launch, VAM Summit and Awards is back! The second edition of VFX and More (VAM) Summit will bring together the VFX and related industries, both national and international under one roof, to pause and reflect on trends, technologies, developments and policies in all contexts spanning business, technical and artistic, whereas the VAM Awards will honour and recognise the magic of the creators behind these immersive, awe-inspiring visuals who have set the bar for the Indian VFX industry.

The first edition was graced by 67 speakers composed of industry stalwarts, veterans, leaders and aspiring artists with an audience of over 750 attendees. The edition successfully garnered over two lakh views by the end of the summit across the social media handles of AnimationXpress (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter). 

With 300+ entries, coming in from not just the visual effects studios but also from the production houses and independent artists, the award ceremony saw a range of breakdowns and sizzle reels, amping up the visual delight.
