Cinematic Art On The Urban Exterior
Annual free event featuring original large format films.
Projected nightly on Denver’s walls.
We’re Returning to RiNo Feb. 28 – March 6!
Congratulations to the eight artists who have been selected to create original cinematic works of art to be projected nightly onto eight unique walls across the RiNo Art District.
The eight selected artists and the respective themes of their work are as follows:
- Daniel Fickle – “Love Hour” will pay homage to the silent films of the early 1900s and tell the story of five couples unleashing their love at sunset. Daniel is a returning artist from Side Stories 2019!
- Xadie James Antonio – “Spectre of The Locomotive” will use rotoscope animation blended with the live footage to capture the ephemeral nature of a changing city while the locomotive, the giant ghost of the past, remains a constant staple.
- Annette Isham – Isham’s wall will immerse the audience with animated drone footage of a feminine orb that traverses the Colorado landscape.
- Phillip Faulkner – Faulkner will employ collage motifs that combine representational and abstract marks to create a composition in flux.
- Laurel Cohen – Cohen will create a RiNo monster visually inspired by Colorado’s natural setting and RiNo’s industrial history.
- Natalie Einternz – “Colorado Nature Reimagined” will play with surreal landscapes, integrating vibrant, bold colors and creating portals to transition between animated themes.
- Kendra Fleischman – Fleischman will create an interactive, magical work exploring the simple elegance of silhouettes and shadows. This is Kendra’s second year producing an original film for Side Stories.
- Tom Ludlow – Ludlow’s “Colorado Crystal Cave” will immerse viewers in a crystal cave filled with dripping stalactites, glittering pools, flying bats and glowing insects.
Listen to the artists of last year’s films!
