Over the last five years, the staff of Denton Black Film Festival, or DBFF, have become experts at storytelling and event planning for film. These talents have extended year-after-year to other artistic endeavors including spoken word poetry, comedy, food, lecture, and music. The focus of DBFF has primarily been in the Arts.
In addition, DBFF will focus on the sciences of film, i.e. interactive technolologies and arts, that affect film professionals behind the camera and has extensions into our everyday lives. For this reason, during the culminating retreat happening in January 2020, DBFF will introduce the ideal compliment to film - media and design - by adding an Interactive Expo (DBFF-IE).
Starting January 23, 2020  Over 20,000 sq. ft. will blossom into the touchable, wearable, embeddable (XR), augmentable (AR), aeriality, imaging, recognition, and virtual (VR) devices of the Interactive Expo across two primary venues and embedded into several secondary venues.
Starting January 26, 2020  Our volunteers and organizers will present awards and certificate to best-of-show winners and sponsors will begin breaking down their booths and/or respective areas.
Opening Branch DBFF Offices  DBFF-IE and the DBFF Institute will continue to promote interactive events, products, and services that jointly assist your company throughout the year.

Our Invitation

The Denton Black Film Festival (DBFF) is a multidisciplinary platform that utilizes film and events to share stories of the Black community – its traditions, ideas, and experiences – in a multitude of ways.  For every one actor or actress standing in front of the camera, there are 100's of film and business professionals behind the eye of camera whose focus is to create the most dynamic media that exists in the world.  DBFF Interactive Expo (DBFF-IE) seeks to showcase the most dynamic media that exist in the world based on two criteria - (1) media relevant to the black experience and (2) media using 7 of the most progressive and interactive technologies - scrapbooks, touch screens, AR, VR, wearables, drones, and 3D printing.

Guideline 1 of 12:  Determine your Industry or Industry Talks

EXAMPLES Below

This section categorizes EXAMPLE descriptions and schedules for industries and talks that could be used by any of the "7 progressive and interactive levels".  Since some of our sponsors will be startups adopting interactive technologies and arts for the first time, this section seeks to achieve three objectives:  (1) display examples of interactive tech. in industry; (2) assist sponsors in categorizing their industry within the context of DBFF-IE; and (3) assist sponsors in categorizing their company for DBFF-IE catalogs.

Guideline 2 of 12:  Describe Booth or Booth Talks

EXAMPLES Below

The layout and setup of the 1st Annual DBFF Interactive Expo can best be explained as an intermixture of “technology villages”.  The architecture of each village is based on the sponsorship level, lounge sizes, actions by startups, and year of startups.  As with many nerdy acronyms, we refer to this architecture as SLAY.  Our SLAY architecture seeks to achieve two objectives:  (1) discuss the words that can be used to describe your sponsor's booth space; and (2) theme and schedule your in-booth experiences.

Guideline 3 of 12:  Describe your Innovators

EXAMPLES below

This section presents EXAMPLES of people promoting their profiles on DBFF-IE using technologies such as touch signage or AR.  Since some of our sponsors will be startups adopting interactive technologies and arts for the first time, DBFF-IE seeks to assist new sponsors in creating personal imagery and themes to market and promote during DBFF-IE.

Guideline 4 of 12:  Layout your Shop or Gallery

EXAMPLES below

Secureitz, one of the expo participants, will virtually assist our sponsors and startups during the months leading up to the DBFF-IE as well as provide services afterward for a total time of one year. In this approach, DBFF-IE can continue to grow and reach the mark of being the best destination for storytelling and events associated with film technologies. One of our major efforts is to assist in promoting the villages for our sponsors.  Below are some EXAMPLE ideas for images and products to stimulate designs and layout to be used during DBFF-IE.

Guideline 5 of 12:  Determine and Prepare your Media

EXAMPLES below (also see info under KIOSKS)

In 1910, D.W. Griffith coined the phrase “Lights, Camera, and Action” as specific commands to three essential factions of a moment in film. Similiarly, DBFF-IE represents one of the three essential divisions of DBFF - festival, institute, interactive. DBFF-IE focuses more deeply on the CAMERA area associated with the trichotomy of FILM and media.  This section is used to provide an EXAMPLE of media that may stimulate deeper connections and ideas for media used at DBFF-IE.

Improve their Viewing Experience

Contact us if you have film interests or functionalities to custom design into your media.

your Media

Guideline 6 of 12:  Display Links to Social Media, Streams, or Timelines

EXAMPLES below

There are many tools that can be used for streaming statistics and comments ranging from social media to phone devices.  These streaming softwares and devices may be incorporated into the DBFF-IE environmnets through various forms of large-scale digital signage.  This section serves two objectives: (1) to present brief and simple EXAMPLES of comments from visitors to DBFF-IE; and (2) to remind our sponsors of the importance of streaming on signage and social media platforms.
