FREEWAVES (FOUNDED 1989)
the always thought provoking media arts organization
is centering its 11th biennial festival around/in/about Hollywood.
Entitled “HOLLYWOULD...” the festival will fuse media arts and Hollywood Boulevard,
spanning 5 days, from Thu., Oct. 9 - Mon., Oct. 13.
_ Showcase 160 experimental videos, films and media art from around the world
_ Transform the world-famous boulevard into a massive, multi-faceted screening room
_ Enlighten & entertain with special events, screenings, and site-specific happenings at over
40 venues such as: LACE, American Cinematheque’s Egyptian Theatre, poolside at the
Roosevelt Hotel, the Musicians Institute, King King, the Knitting Factory, and such Hollywood
staples as an erotic supply store, a hookah lounge, jewelry stores and a tattoo parlor. And of
course portals connected to the festival’s unique web-based content.
“HOLLYWOULD...” is a playful and evocative turn both as an international symbol of the American entertainment industry and as a Los Angeles neighborhood very much in flux. Most events are free unless otherwise noted. www.freewaves.org will come alive as October approaches.
