onedotzero_adventures in motion
Friday, April 30 – Sunday, May 2
Three Day Screening pass = $10

The London-based onedotzero_adventures in motion festival returns to EMPAC with a delirious showcase of the latest developments in digital and interactive design. Comprised of screenings of feature-length films and shorts as well as live a/v performances, interactive installations, animation and music videos, the festival is a weekend-long celebration of the moving image that's guaranteed to inspire, provoke, and delight.

Back-to-back screenings of onedotzero's latest compilation programs will be shown in the EMPAC Theater over the entire weekend, creating the foundation for the festival and another reason to stick around the building until the wee hours - and then come back to do it again the next day!

Friday 04/30, 8 PM

Join the artists, onedotzero, and the EMPAC team for the festival's opening soiree as part of Troy Night Out. Grab a snack and a drink, explore the installations, and wander in and out of screenings. Enjoy the cafe that will be bumping with a larger-than-life HD feed from the Diplo show. Definitely stop by.
