onedotzero_adventures in motion festival – Starts today @ BFI

Pioneering festival onedotzero_adventures in motion returns this year to London’s BFI Southbank from 10 – 14 November 2010, presenting the most exciting international moving image work, from the offbeat to the radical, aiming to push the boundaries of creativity, innovation and technological wonder.

I was lucky enough to see many of the screenings in the very first onedotzero festival, back in the days when most of the events/screenings were held at the ICA – its great to see how the festival has grown over the years and it now seems very established at the BFI.

The festival comprises screenings, installations, audio/visual events and several talks and workshops. Several of the screenings are repeated at different times over the next few days so you should be able to find a time suitable. Some events are already fully booked but there’s plenty to choose from.

Some of you may be familiar with the onedotzero books or DVD’s. They are widely available and if you haven’t checked them out… you should!!

This years line up is full of cutting edge content. There’s far too much to list it all here clearly – but you can check the full details here.

There are many highlights this year. Heres an overview of some of our ones to look out for!
