This fall we bring you the onedotzero_adventures in motion festival, two nights of double feature screenings will be presented from the international touring festival which premiered in London in 2010.

Curated and compiled by onedotzero, all programs explore new forms and hybrids of moving image across motion graphics, short film, animation, music videos, and more.

Evelyn’s Café will be open for citystates 10 and robotica screenings from 6-9 PM.

citystates 10

A continued exploration of onedotzero’s fascination with the city via an eclectic series of filmic responses to urban environments and fast-paced city living. As we accelerate toward becoming nations of super-cities, this year’s festival selection presents and questions utopian desires, bringing a sense of adventure, hope, and positivity about our shared future world.

robotica

onedotzero’s partiality to our mechanical friends of the future has been demonstrated over the years throughout the festival programming. This selection touches on the ethics, social effects, and pure fun of a world shared with robots or androids, from spy messengers and declarations of love to extraterrestrial robotic invasions of earth.
