ResFest Digital Film Festival

McBean Theater (at the Exploratorium)

The 1997 ResFest Digital Film Festival comes to the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco on Sept 25 – 27 with two programs of films, panel discussions and numerous interactive demonstraions. This internationally touring festival focuses on the expanding field of digital filmmaking, particularly the increasingly powerful desktop computer. The two programs are the “ResFest Shorts” program, a collection of sixteen short films from around the world including such notable talents as Spike Jonze, Roman Coppola, Herman Weeb, EBN, and many others; and “Cinema Electronica”, which brings the merging of techno music and filmmaking to the big screen with new or rarely seen videos from Nick Philip, H-Gun Labs, Hexstatic and several others.
