Press Release at: http://lajolla.patch.com/groups/arts-and-entertainment/p/artpower-at-uc-...

ArtPower! is launching its brand new Filmatic Festival at UCSD's Qualcomm Institute, featuring four action-packed days of cinematic adventures! The Filmatic Festival is a digitally-diverse festival that aims to blur the lines between artist and audience, including interactive screenings and installations, gaming, workshops, crowd-sourced material, digital industry experts, parties, and more. From hands-on filmmaking and crowd-sourced storytelling, to karaoke jams and cinematic slams, ArtPower! is re-imagining the film festival experience by empowering audiences to become the very artists and tastemakers we want to watch. We will bring some of the best and brightest talent including a highly creative curatorial team to join our audiences in discovering, creating, and sharing films that provoke, uplift, and entertain.

Single Event tickets ranging from $5-$25, to 4-Day Passes for $50-$175.
