@NSCADRESEARCH     #CINEFLUX


New image and sound tools provided by digital technologies have and will continue to revolutionize the vocabulary and methodologies of the screen arts, the way screen arts are viewed and experienced, and ultimately, the society that has made cinema a primary vehicle of artistic expression for the last 100 years.

While NSCAD currently boasts considerable and accomplished screen and media arts expertise, the establishment of Cineflux has accelerated opportunities for exploring collaborative research across disciplines and faculties, bridging areas of specialization until now separate.

This years Cineflux Symposium, The Old New, welcomes speakers from around the world to discuss and share ideas within digital audio/visual media, architecture and design.

This year’s Cineflux Symposium, The Old New, is open to the general public at no charge. No registration necessary. 

March 7th at 7pm  /  March 8th at 8:30am   /   March 9th at 9:00am
