JDS Creative Academy has reinvented what the City of Temecula recognized as the International Temecula Film and Music Festival into what is now referred to as DigiFestR Temecula. DigiFestR Temecula is a vehicle for the community and region to come together and experience digital media in many creative and artistic forms. DigiFestTM Temecula is also a place to learn about industry advancements, how to pursue a career in the industry, and how to incorporate digital arts into the economic culture.
DigiFestR acknowledges talent in the industry at all levels and ages, incorporating 6th-12th graders, amateurs, and professionals.
The #JDSFAMILY is known for never giving up! We were determined to not let the current situation stop us from Celebrating All Things DIgital, so we recreated DigiFest 2020 into The DigiDay: a special DigiFest® Virtual Event! We crammed what is normally a 3 day festival into an 8 hour amazing virtual event…and filmakers were thrilled! Saturday August 22nd, attendees were amazed when they logged in to our VIRTUAL Studio created by BirdsEye VR – Temecula where participants were able to navigate around our 7000 sq. ft. facility, enjoy digital gallery exhibits, watch renowned industry speakers and screenings all out of the comfort of their own home. Within the webinar, there were opportunities to share insights, gain knowledge from our Industry Panelists, and network with other participants all day via a ZOOM feature! We look forward to DIgiFest 2021…and whatever that will look like – we’re ready!! Click here for the latest news on DigiDay 2020.
