Infinity Festival Hollywood is the place where Hollywood meets Silicon Valley. The festival, a multi-day annual event held in Los Angeles, celebrates “Story Enabled by Technology,” bringing together Hollywood’s finest storytelling talent with the innovative creators of cutting-edge technology. The event began in 2018 in Beverly Hills, where the Paley Center served as the festival hub, with screenings and special events held in various theaters and locations around Beverly Hills. The festival gained momentum, and in 2019 moved into the heart of Hollywood at Goya Studios and the Dream Hotel, as well as the Dolby Theater and other Hollywood venues.
The festival changed focus for 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, by going all-virtual. Although we weren’t able to plan a live event, interest in the festival hadn’t waned. Our production partner, FNTECH, created a proprietary virtual platform, which gave us an arena to continue the festival with 8 weeks of original programming and reach a broader audience. Beginning in October 2020 and continuing through January 2021, the festival successfully broadcast over 60 hours of original programming, continuing our original goal of bringing together creators, directors, producers and writers, as well as senior executives and technologists. We also partnered with iconic recording label Capitol Music Group to feature Capitol Royale, which brought a unique slate of music related programming to the 2020 festival.
For 2021, Infinity Festival is planning a hybrid live and online event happening in Hollywood in November. The festival will continue its theme of “storytelling enabled by technology” with an entirely new slate of innovative programming, including industry-leading speakers, panel discussions, innovation labs, a fine art exhibition, and more – each with an emerging-tech focus. We hope to see you there!
