This is a list of film festivals dedicated to machinima, the use of real-time 3-D engines in filmmaking. The Academy of Machinima Arts & Sciences (AMAS) regularly holds such festivals, and recognizes exemplary machinima works through awards nicknamed the Mackies.

The Machinima Expo (or "MachinExpo") is an annual international machinima festival started in 2008. In 2010 the organization expanded and is now run with help of a large team of volunteers. Submission is accepted during the summer months and the event takes place in November on the Internet and in the virtual world of Second Life".[1]

2002 Machinima Film Festival[edit]

On July 17, 2002, the first Machinima Film Festival, sponsored by NVIDIA, was held as part of QuakeCon 2002. However, according to David Stellmack of TG Daily, the larger QuakeCon event seemed to overshadow the festival, which was "not very well attended".[2]
