About the Red Stick Festival

In previous years, the Red Stick Animation festival has been a highly visible and productive connection with Louisiana and the Baton Rouge community. We believe that the international exposure and community connection that a festival like Red Stick provides is much needed for the community. However, we are proposing a rebranding and retooling of the festival - to an event that will be focused on Digital Media (including, but not limited to animation), maker-fairs, experimental music concerts, digital art exhibits, game jams and other technology derived events. We would like to invite you to our Year-end event of cultural computing activities on May 9, 2014, here at the Digital Media Center. This showcase will present a small sample of what we are proposing to develop on a larger scale in 2015.
