The Filmatic Festival, a digital-media playground celebrating the future of film-going, was created to celebrate the creative media work of UCSD faculty and students, to be a catalyst for creativity on campus and in San Diego, and to transform traditional passive film going attendance to ones of active, immersive and inspiring experiences. The first of its kind in San Diego, the Filmatic Festival aims to blur the line between audience and artist and upend expectations. Experiences include interactive performances and screenings, gaming, media installations, 3D experiences, workshops, crowd-sourced material, digital industry ArtTalks!, parties, and more. Tickets can be purchased by phone @ (858) 534-8497 or online @ www.artpower.ucsd.edu or in person @ the UC San Diego Box Office, Price Center Plaza[more]
