The FMX trailers are traditionally created by students of Animationsinstitut (Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg) in their third year of study.
In 2019, FMX will release four different trailers for the first time. Each of the areas named in the FMX subtitle – Animation, Effects, Games and Immersive Media – will be represented with their own trailers, each of them unique in technique, style, and story.
