Regeneration celebrates a period of renewed existence, an improvement of social and economic conditions, a release from corruption, positive feedback, and the reactivation of a catalyst. It represents the conceptualization of a generation that will disrupt the hegemonic structures of the past and a break from patterns that no longer serve. A REgeneration in the spirit of change and expansive reasoning towards an alternate future that puts digital motion artists and their work at the forefront.

Denver, February 23rd — Denver Digerati opens the “Regeneration” artist submission portal for the 6th annual Supernova Digital Animation Festival, dedicated solely to artists working with digital animation and motion art, hosted in Denver, Colorado. Supernova is presented by Denver Digerati, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, with the mission to advance digital motion art through exhibition and education, accelerating the merger of art and technology. Artists from across the world can submit for consideration, their latest motion-artworks through the Supernova Film Freeway portal. 

The Supernova Digital Animation Festival is a singular example of innovation within an urban context, as well as a celebration of visionary artists who utilize technology to influence new media artworks and animation. Supernova will employ a multi-faceted approach for presentation in 2021. Thousands of Colorado residents will have the advantage of attending a walking-tour activation of the large network of public LED displays, through partnership with the Denver Theater District, as well as the continuation of a month-long takeover of Night Lights Denver, on the iconic Daniels & Fisher Tower, supporting artists through direct commissions for their work. The full slate of programming will be exhibited through a robust online platform throughout the month of September. 

In 2021, Denver Digerati will increase the focus on education and will offer a series of Crush Courses. There is a lot of excitement surrounding the workshops, which will be led by some of the most successful artists working in the medium today. In addition to classes for adults, teen classes will be taught, with the inclusion of reduced-rate or free education for youth. All of the workshops will bring the opportunity for works produced in the classes to be shown in the festival providing a unique and exciting exhibition experience.Artists may submit up to two animations for consideration through Supernova’s submission portal on Film Freeway. Artists submitting their work prior to April 30th enjoy a discounted submission fee. The final deadline is July 2nd.

Supernova Digital Animation Festival - World on Fire

Denver Digerati is accepting artist submissions through FilmFreeway for the 5th annual Supernova Digital Animation Festival, the world’s only festival dedicated to artists working with digital animation and motion-based art, hosted in Denver, Colorado. The Supernova Festival focuses on a wide array of motion-artworks created by individual artists or teams using computer software as the focal development of their work. “World on Fire” is the theme for Supernova 2020, supporting the need for a much greater collective consciousness across all critical paths and intersections with humanity. 

Supernova’s day of in-competition programming will take place on Saturday, September 19th, with additional art activations and hosted events throughout September. Supernova is presented by Denver Digerati, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, with the mission to advance digital motion-art through exhibition and education, accelerating the merger of art and technology.

Supernova’s explosion of digital animation and motion-art captivates thousands of Colorado residents and visitors across a network of large scale outdoor public LED displays and partner venues in the Denver Theatre District, including a month-long takeover of Night Lights Denver, on the iconic Daniels & Fisher Tower. 

"The whole concept and execution of this fest is great. I love how the public outside screenings allow the films to mix with the sounds and happenings of the urban environment (not unlike a John Cage indeterminacy composition). I think every film was enriched through this juxtaposition. Though cinema is a powerful art form, there is always a strange backdrop of intangibility compared to the more tactile nature of some other arts. The outside screening sort of solidified the experience in a way, giving cinema (the intangible) a body of sorts. The result is electrifying." - Michael Edwards, 2019 Supernova Competition participating artist

Prizes Details: 

Denver Digerati awards significant cash prizes to winners in at least three different program categories and digital motion-art genres such as narrative, abstract, experimental, playful, mind-bending, gaming, machinema, music video, educational, and documentary.
