On Saturday, October 8, the Turku 2011 foundation will host a Star Wars Uncut mini festival in Logomo.
Star Wars Uncut is a project where the movie was cut into 15-second segments that were then recreated by fans of the film and edited together. The father of the idea, Casey Pugh, won the Participative Media category of the Turku 2011 Foundation’s competition last year.
Before the screening, there will be a discussion featuring Professor and creativity researcher Alf Rehn and Star Wreck scriptwriter Jarmo Puskala. The day’s program will also include other winning entries from the Live 2011 Grand Prix media art competition and a concert featuring 8-bit video game–inspired band Desert Planet, and local X-Rust with Transistor Rhythm, Burdock, and Pepeto.
Doors open at 2 PM, there is no entrance fee but attendance is capped at the first 1 000 visitors.
