onedotzero's pioneering festival returns to the BFI in 2010

onedotzero_adventures in motion festival 2010 presented the most progressive new short films, creative talent and moving image work from around the world, including exclusive previews, feature films, playful interactive installations, audiovisual performances, talks, workshops and director Q&As. The festival featured a variety of sensory experiences including a multi screen installation by Quayola, 2001-inspired intimate cinema Pods from Ovei, AntiVJ's latest incarnation of their audiovisual volcano mapping project "Eyjafjallajokull", Hellicar & Lewis and Feedback.

Music also featured prominently, with very special live events by DJ Yoda at the BFI IMAX, a 20th anniversary screening and bar event for Ninja Tune as part of BUG and a special edition of the BFI's regular AV extravaganza, Dark Fibre, working with Musion's 3D holographic projection technology with a confirmed line-up including Holotronica [Stuart Warren-Hill, Hexstatic], AV artists D-Fuse, av artists d-fuse with audio from Swayzak's Brun, VJ/illustrator Shantell Martin and electronic DJ/Producer 10SUI.

onedotzero director Shane RJ Walter explained the focus of this festival: "taking utopian visions as an undercurrent theme, this year's festival is imbued with a sense of adventure, hope and creative positivity, which can be seen evidently through wow + flutter and citystates."

With an emphasis on convergence and collaboration, highlights include robotica, an exploration of the wonder and social effects of robots or androids which also includes a robot-building workshop in the form of moanbot; code warriors, investigating the trend of using computer code as raw material to create moving image work; and ladymation, a brand new programme showcasing eclectic gems from female directors currently leading the way in animation.
