Big Pictures Los Angeles is pleased to announce it’s partnership with the Slamdance Film Festival to present DIG: Digital, Interactive & Gaming. An opening reception will be held Friday, December 4th, 2015 from 5pm – 9pm. DIG is an exciting and innovative new showcase from the Slamdance Film Festival dedicated to emerging independent artists working in hybrid, immersive, and developing forms of digital media art. Ten works will feature in the inaugural DIG show, hosted by Big Pictures Los Angeles. The show then travel and be featured at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City that runs from January 22nd through January 28th, 2016.

Collectively, DIG represents a discovery of unique experiences. The new showcase features meta-narrative iPad applications, short films made for virtual reality, cubist-inspired video art pieces and video games being developed for PlayStation and the personal computer. Projects are reflective and bombastic, allowing attendees to be surprised by a variety of different interactions. The program is the result of a chaotic entry process that told artists simply, “if you think your work fits, it likely does.”

DIG was co-curated by Big Pictures Los Angeles founder Doug Crocco, along with Slamdance’s Deron Williams and Peter Baxter.
