SBFF, dubbed the SXSW for LA’s digital, tech and film scene, includes starlenz for the first time.

According to Festival Programmer Peter Greene, “There should be something for everyone.” The Silicon Beach Film Festival & Playa Vista Film Festival both serve as a gathering place for filmmakers, artists, innovators, and the global creative community. Additionally, they provide a venue for independent films international and local to gain exposure.

The Silicon Beach Film Festival brings together technology and filmmakers like no other festival with an interactive and real experience. ” says Jon Gursha Silicon Beach Film Festival Director.

The technology superimposes virtual celebrities into the user’s view of the real world via the starlenz iPhone app (no hardware, no goggles) – a truly cutting-edge AR innovation., say Sandie West SBFF’s producer.  The fans will also have the ability to activate additional exclusive content at select locations or by pointing their phone at certain images.
