About Belgrade

Lonely Planet proclaimed Belgrade as Europe's new capital of cool and it's no wonder. Belgrade is emerging as the hot new destination for international, feature, advertising and tech project with talents and professionals whose careers are spanning globally. Serbia offers competitive production costs, highly skilled and creative talent, scenic locations and a solid industry infrastructure. And there's more. Belgrade buzzes with an unparalleled energy these days. From the sublime to the extreme, the city's frenetic nightlife, cool urban edge, bohemian vibe and safe streets are sure to please even the most discerning visitor. The country's unique architecture reflects Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman influences, offering rich, distinct backdrops for a meeting poin of civilizations.

CGA belgrade venues are located in one of the oldest parts of city downtown that is transforming into the new creative quarters with art ateliers, studios, fashion designers, cafes and shops. Lower Dorcol or Donji Dorcol emenates the mixture or history, industrial heritage and spirit of digital nomad culture. Close to the most prominent Knez Mihailova and Kalemegdan, yet secluded and nestled atmosphere is yet to be explored. Beyond Museum of Science and Technology, the main hub of Computer Graphic and Arts Conference, we suggest you explore Nikola Tesla Museum, Bohemian street of Skadarlija, Kalemegdan Fortress and Contemporary Art Museum

Serbia hosts an ambitious post-production industry capable of a wide array of services for high-tech post-production projects. Prominent VFX Studios have collaborated with a number of film and advertising production companies from LA and New York to Mumbai and Dubai; meeting each new project with the highest level of professionalism, passion, and skill. Visual effect and post-production studios and their teams handle all aspects of creative and technical post production while gaming companies are growing in fast pace on the global market. This is why CGA Belgrade is the place to be.
