Description

TPFF will also host its first TECH PEOPLE EXPO, Saturday June 3, 2017 at the Julia De Burgos Performance & Arts Center in (JdBPAC) at East 106th Street & Lexington Avenue in East Harlem. Patrons can see the latest in Virtual, Augmented & Mixed Reality, demos, workshops and panels conducted by Graphic Design NY/Visual Creatives Collective. 20 films will be screened in the VR Lounge, including “Stingray” directed by Jerod Macdonald-Evoy & Rashinda Bankhead, which delves into the world of surveillance technology showing how police, federal officials and hackers can read your text messages, see where you are and more. This will be followed by a special workshop called “GENERATION CYBER- What you need to protect your work in Today’s Digital Age,”. “This is the next phase of storytelling”, says Veronica, “and we are so thankful for all of the exhibitors and top leading professionals in this industry who have donated their time, skill and expertise to bring this technology to Harlem at The People’s Film Festival”. We are also excited to have NeuroSpeculative AfroFeminism, a multidisciplinary exploration of women of color’s experience through the lens of technology, society and culture. Patrons can discover the neurocosmetology lab, a kind of beauty salon, where instead of ordinary braids, customers are fitted with transcranial electrodes that allow access to a surreal alternate world. This event is FREE & open to the public, however, you must RSVP in advance.
