Formed in 2008, first as an arm of the Vancouver ACM SIGGRAPH chapter and as of late 2011 on its own, the Spark Computer Graphics (Spark CG) Society has been working behind the scenes of Vancouver’s computer graphics community, organizing and hosting events that foster community, ignite the imagination and advance technology.

Since the inaugural SPARK FX in January 2008 and SPARK ANIMATION in September 2008, the Spark CG Society has continued to bring the best of the international community to Vancouver and over the years has played host to a number of luminaries including Glen Keane, Syd Mead, David Fine, Tomm Moore, John Knoll, Dennis Muren, Mark Osborne, Joe Letteri, Roger Allers and Nora Twomey, as well as a number of Academy Award-winning teams behind everything from Back to the Future and Lord of the Rings to Birdman and Interstellar. The quality of Spark CG guests speaks volumes, not only to Spark CG’s dedication to bring the very best in the industry to Vancouver, but the organization’s continued commitment to bring the local professional and international communities together.

In 2011, the Spark CG team was instrumental in building momentum to ensure the success of SIGGRAPH 2011. The conference was a resounding success, returning to Vancouver in 2014 and 2018. In the coming year, Spark CG will be working diligently to support the SIGGRAPH conference which returns to Vancouver in 2022.

The Spark CG Society continues to promote and foster the local computer graphics community by producing and co-hosting events, supporting other local organizations and producing its signature events SPARK FX and SPARK ANIMATION.
