Fango got the exclusive lowdown from publicist Ellen Pasternack on the 8th Annual Festival of Visual Effects, to be held July 6-8 at Hollywood’s Egyptian Theatre (

6712 Hollywood Boulevard
). The three-day Visual Effects Society extravaganza, set to feature workshops and discussions led by some of the industry’s leading artists (including Academy Award winners Dennis Muren, John Myhre and Robert Skotak), will focus on “cutting-edge technological advances, historical achievements, strategic planning and forecasting for the future of visual effects in film, television, and animation.” Festival plans also include the transformation of the Egyptian’s famed courtyard into a “Festival Courtyard,” which will host VFX and entertainment-industry vendors, special displays, raffles and a Hospitality Tent.
