I'm Not Gonna Move to LA
I'm Not Gonna Move to L.A. (NOLA) is a monthly short film festival celebrating local filmmakers.
On the first Wednesday of every month, we invite fun-loving film enthusiasts to partake in a unique experience that features a 'percolator' (coffee session) to pitch ideas, film trivia, and a screening of shorts produced by local filmmakers. After the screening, we invite folks to stay around for networking, to hear music by Miami-based musicians, and to learn which film won the audience and judges' awards.
FilmGate Interactive Creative Conference
Each February in Miami Beach, we host the annual FilmGate Interactive Creative Conference, which brings close to 5000 creatives from around the world to explore how new technology is defining the future of storytelling. From Sony, Black Magic, RED and Panasonic cameras to virtual reality glasses, we inform and inspire through hands on workshops, immersive screenings and installations, as well as content generating labs.
Learn Do Share Miami
Learn Do Share (LDS) is a grassroots innovation engine; a combination of events, labs and peer production, community for open collaboration, design fiction and social innovation.The three words LEARN, DO and SHARE embody our philosophy: we learn from everyone. we do by prototyping. we share what we learn. Each year we invite students from diverse backgrounds with emphasis on economically challenged high schools and offer them scholarships to this three day lab that is designed to take a social or climate issue, like rising sea levels and inspire youth-inspired solutions. The students are mentored by industry professionals and our peer production cycles help groups stay together to co-create prototypes of their collective imaginations.
