DENVER - Supernova, the first outdoor digital animation festival will come to Denver Saturday at the Denver Performing Arts Complex.
Nearly 140 short films, all made by artists on their computers, will be projected during Supernova on the digital screens on 14th Street at Arapahoe and Curtis streets and will feature videos from Denver Digerati's 2015 Friday Flash Series, pieces designed by students from CU Denver's College of Arts and Media, a collection of works focused on abstract art, family-friendly shorts and gaming-related artwork, as well as solo presentations from award-winning speculative fiction animator John Butler and American digital artist Adam Ferriss.
Supernova, was curated by Ivar Zeile of Denver Digerati, an organization that, along with the Denver Theatre District, brings digital animation and motion-based artwork to the public on LED screens across Downtown Denver.
The festival runs from 4 to 11 p.m. with a juried competition from 8 to 10 p.m. The event is free to the public.
From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Supernova will host an educational forum at The Commons on Champa. The forum, which is a ticketed event, will discuss the history of Denver Digerati, a chance for students to get feedback on their work and a juror-led panel discussion.
The entire festival is located between Champa and Arapahoe on 14th Street. The films will be projected on three screens. There will be one large, temporary screen in the Denver Performing Arts Complex Galleria with first-come, first-serve seating.
