April 21, 2021 - June 5, 2021
Digital Carnival Z
Hosted by Cinevolution
Cinevolution’s annual flagship event, Digital Carnival Z is a festival of cutting-edge media art for community and artistic audiences of all ages.
This year, for the first time, the event is taking place as a hybrid festival simultaneously on the traditional, unceded territories of the hǝn̓q̓ ǝmin̓ ǝm̓ speaking peoples (Richmond, BC) and online. Under the theme of Z, Digital Carnival explores alternative conceptions of the relationship between bodies, gestures, culture and society. Z references the gender-neutral pronoun ‘zie,’ the emergent generation-Z, and the possibilities for moving beyond the XX/XY binary.
From April 21 – June 5, 2021, we invite you to join us in exploring a series of dynamic projects and conversations that make visible alternative ways of occupying and performing the body, past, present, and future. All events are free.
All Digital Carnival Z events will have ASL interpretation and Automated Live Captions in English. If you would like to know more about the ASL interpreters for each event, please contact our Accessibility Coordinator, Regan Shrumm at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 778-803-7150 ext. 105.
Except for Workroom, all of the events will be recorded, and a transcript will be made available two weeks after the event.
The Digital Carnival Z: Virtual Festival Launch will also include live audio description provided by Rebecca Singh of Superior Description Services.
