JDS Creative Academy has reinvented what the City of Temecula recognized as the International Temecula Film and Music Festival into what is now referred to as DigiFestR Temecula. DigiFestR Temecula is a vehicle for the community and region to come together and experience digital media in many creative and artistic forms. DigiFestTM Temecula is also a place to learn about industry advancements, how to pursue a career in the industry, and how to incorporate digital arts into the economic culture.
DigiFestR acknowledges talent in the industry at all levels and ages, incorporating 6th-12th graders, amateurs, and professionals.
This year's DigiFest was an amazing virtual event with participants enjoying renowned industry speakers, workshops, screenings, and networking all from the comfort of their home. Within the broadcast there were many opportunities to share insights, gain knowledge from our Industry Panelists, and network with other participants all weekend via a ZOOM feature and a Virtual Studio Audience! We look forward to DigiFest® 2022! STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS!
