Fresh from its global travels, pioneering festival onedotzero_adventures in motion returned to London’s BFI Southbank to present international moving image work from beyond the frontiers of innovation - to inspire, provoke and entertain.
In its 13th year, the 2009 festival presented a dynamic compilation of leading edge cinematic expressions in the form of short films, promos, interactive experiences and feature films. Educational forums, panel discussions, workshops, parties and lounge events allowed for new creative connections with artists, industry members, and the public experiencing inspiration and firsthand creative insights. This year also saw the start of onedotzero’s involvement in the NESTA/ UK Film Council digital innovation scheme, Take 12.
Shane Walter, CEO and Creative Director of onedotzero, said “onedotzero travels to over 35 cities a year, so the idea of how cities are changing is important for us to explore across our programme. This year we are also exploring the tension between traditional handcraft and the digital. Increasingly visible across the board, this is the manifestation of a kind of post digitalism, where the digital is part of the mix, but does not dominate or lead - it acts more as the enabler of the idea.”
