Beyond bringing film to audiences, the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) has made an effort in recent years to explore new technology and champion local artists and tech talent.
VIFF presented the second edition of Signals at this year’s festival, in partnership with DigiBC, an interactive exhibition featuring 35 curated projects that investigate the potential of creative tech in storytelling from interactive AI to Augmented Reality installations.
On this episode of Broadcast Dialogue – The Podcast we catch up with VIFF Executive Director Kyle Fostner, DigiBC Executive Director Loc Dao, Dene interdisciplinary artist Casey Koyzcan, and filmmaker and artist Loretta Todd, one of the matriarchs behind the IM4 Lab, an inclusive Indigenous space offering mentorship in immersive technologies.
You can revisit this year’s Signals projects online at signals.digibc.org.
