CICLOPE 2017 finalists revealed – and MPC lands eight nominations across four categories

Now in its eighth year, international craft festival CICLOPE has announced the projects competing for its one-eyed trophies later this month. The two-day festival celebrates the art of execution in moving images, all set to take place at Berlin's Kino International from 26-27 October. Kicking-off the festival is MPC Film’s Sheldon Stopsack, an acclaimed VFX Supervisor, presenting a behind-the-scenes look at 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’. More details here. 

The CICLOPE finalist list spans four categories, and is selected by a jury of top international producers and creatives from a total of more than 1,000 entries. We’re delighted to have partnered with adam&eveDDB, Leo Burnett Chicago, Publicis Italy, DDB Paris and JWT on work that has made the finalist list in Branded Content, for both VFX and Animation, as well as Digital Craft/VR.
