Most festivals in the last year have taken a hybrid approach to their screenings, activations, and panel discussions, mixing tech advancements, virtual technologies, and good old-fashioned in-person events. But this approach really makes sense for this year’s Infinity Festival Hollywood, which “brings together Silicon Valley innovators with Hollywood’s leading storytellers.”
Taking place November 3-4 at the Dream Hotel and Goya Studios in Hollywood, as well as online (of course!), Infinity Festival Hollywood will bring together over 100 speakers, artists, and designers, working on multiple disciplines and in the fields of entertainment, fine arts and technology. Get prepared.
