Faiyaz Jafri on Neo-Archetypes & Hyper-Unrealism.
Thursday, September 21st, 7:30pm at the Sie FilmCenter in Denver, Colorado.
The Denver Film Society and Denver Digerati present an exclusive evening with Faiyaz Jafri, one of the world’s leading pioneers using digital techniques in animation. The Sie Film Center presents a selection of Jafri’s award winning short films created over the last five years, along with an intimate discussion by the artist about digital craft in today’s filmmaking and visual art realms. In 2014 Denver Digerati commissioned Jafri for the 10-Second Film Festival, and again in 2015 for their Friday Flash No.11, resulting in the astounding short “This Ain’t Disneyland” which has since gone on to screen in over 30 film festivals around the world. In 2015 Jafri co-founded the Third Culture Film Festival, the first truly independent film festival taking place annually in Hong Kong. Jafri’s visit to Denver coincides with his selection as a juror for SUPERNOVA Outdoor Digital Animation Festival 2017, taking place on September 23rd in Downtown Denver, hosted by the Denver Theatre District and Denver Arts and Venues Next Stage NOW!
