Filmgate: Interactive Film Festival Brings Rock Gods, Digital Media Gurus, and Co-Creation to Miami

If there's one word that sums up this century so far, it's interactive. These days, audiences don't want to sit and silently watch a film screening or listen to a monotonous lecture. In our modern times of Twitter, Instagram, and digital engagement, they want in on the action.

Now, in tribute to these changing moors, Indie Film Club Miami (IFCM) is introducing the city's first interactive film festival, Filmgate.

Showcasing the best in independent content creation and co-creation, the festival will span February 1st through 3rd and feature names like groundbreaking DSLR filmmaker Philip Bloom, indie director Alejandro Jodorowsky, and Miami's own Rakontur king, Billy Corben. Not to mention audience members, who'll become stars of the show themselves.
