Exceptional shortlist for iMapp Bucharest 2016
iMapp Bucharest 2016, one of the biggest 3D multimedia shows in the world, organized by creart – The Center for Creation, Art and Tradition of the Municipality of Bucharest, has announced its shortlist for the third edition of the festival!
iMapp Bucharest stands for video projections on the second largest administrative building in the world, more than 104 projectors used, 23.000 square meters of projection surface, over 2.000.000 ANSI lumens and one huge stage. Each year, in September, the best video artists in the world showcase their work on the façade of the Palace of Parliament, in front of a large audience.
Video mapping uses a complex 3D image, that brings to life the surface of the building by forms and colours, using each architectonic element in order to personalize and reshape the gigantic area of the construction. Thus, the “outline” of the building becomes the main protagonist of a dynamic show of sound, colour, light, a true optical illusion.
The 6 creative teams that will showcase their work on 24 of September 2016 were selected by the previous edition’s jury, led by Jean François Zurawik. They are from Montenegro, Spain, Turkey, Romania, Russia and Hungary.
Filip Roca – Montenegro

Limelight – Hungary
No mapping clichés but storytelling unique 3D animation content, combined with 15 years of experience, makes the Hungarian team, Limelight one of the leading group of artists on the 3d projection mapping scene.
The creative concept of this edition of the contest will be “DIALOGUES”. In 2016, the biggest video mapping show in the world will be about interactions. We imagine the show as a brilliant conversation between the Palace of Parliament and the tens of thousands of people in front of it. Deep and meaningful images will build up a powerful connection between artists and the public.
