It all started in 1994 – back then Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg decided to host an exchange fair for their students. The “Film and Media Exchange” was born, which would become FMX – Film and Media Exchange in Stuttgart, Germany.


Fast forward to 2022, when Filmakademie and Animationsinstitut host the 26th edition of FMX. From starting off as a student event, FMX has developed into one of the world’s most important conferences dedicated to digital entertainment.
