Festival starts in


“140 Characters” poses the question, “What happened to the future we were promised?"

Directors Statement:

Our thesis is: What happened to the future we were promised? Why did we get Twitter instead of intelligent media that enhances society? Why are we developing silly apps instead of hardware? All enabled by our so-called “smart phones” which trap us like the prisoners in Plato’s cave – detached from reality and unaware.

We used that as a basis for creating abstract imagery, referencing everything from Aboriginal art to 1940s/1950s television to EDM /Rave visuals. Our goal being to take the viewer on a visual trip. Perhaps described as psychedelic, synthenisa, visual music – the point is to allow viewers to derive their own meaning as they travel through the flow of images.
