This year's theme: Down and Dirty
Each year we choose a different theme for our Toronto event. For 2010, we asked our good friend and talented Canadian artist James Paterson (presstube.com) to work with us on on the theme and the creative. The result was 'down and dirty', which is all about rolling up your sleeves and getting it done!
New to FITC events?
FITC has held 20 events over eight years, through 10 cities and five countries, with over 700 presentations and over 10,000 attendees. From Flash to motion design, to design and creative inspiration, to other technologies like Flex, Air and processing, FITC events stand as unique and exciting events that educate, challenge, and inspire. We began as a Flash Festival, and kept Flash at the core, however we have also continued to add more and more diverse presentations over the years, ever expanding the programming of our events.
What's it all about anyway? Why should I go?
It starts with the presentations. Three solidly packed days of presentations, both technical and creative. Presenters from around the world have been hand-picked for their skill and talent, and all are eager to share and meet you. Most times, you will have five different presentations to choose from. It's also about the networking. Being able to meet and talk to people who share your passion for this industry. Meet them at the presentations, in the exhibitor hall, or at one of the evening parties. Did we mention the parties? We don't mean to toot our own horn, but FITC parties are legendary. Not that you should come just for the parties, but you could, if you really wanted to. We wouldn't tell anyone.
Who goes to an FITC event?
Flash Designer, Flash Developers, Motion Graphic Artists, Digital Artists and anyone in or having an interest in Flash and digital media. From our technical presentations for the beginner, the intermediate, and the super advanced, to the inspirational creative sessions, there is always something to choose from.
