is SCIENCE fiction and ART reality.


“The future that has already happened.”

From the 3rd to 6th of October 2013 the city of Karlsruhe together with the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design | HfG and the Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe | ZKM are once again hosting the international 3D-Festival BEYOND.

BEYOND is a combination of science, technology and art.

Besides a diverse 3D film program that is revealing the latest productions and trends of stereoscopic film in cinema and television with special focus on new forms of storytelling, the 3D-Festival BEYOND 2013 also presents a “PARALLAX” symposium for experts, different national and international art installations will be shown, two “TRANSISTOR” 3D workshops for feature film and documentary and an expo organized by the Karlsruher Messe- und Kongress-GmbH (KMK).

EXPANDED CINEMA explores the future of cinema and television: “3D and BEYOND”.

New dimensions of “Moving Pictures”, storytelling in time and space and the quantum theory of digital dreams as well as higher frame-rates, higher resolution, microscopic and macroscopic insights, super-slow-motion and super-acceleration are all aspects of EXPANDED CINEMA. You get a new outlook on fiction and a new insight on reality.

EXPANDED REALITIES explores the future of digital realities and the distribution from bits to atoms.

“Consumer goods in the age of digital reproduction, sculptures, housing and organs in the age of their printability.”
Not only will green energy in interaction with great mobility and modern storage technologies change the industrially affected economy massively, there will also be a change in production and distribution relations thanks to machines operated by computers. With the help of 3D-printers, human veins and glass objects made out of sand and sun power or even entire buildings can be produced. The consumer turns into a producer or rather a “maker”. But the “maker” is not only a manufacturer; he is also a creator, a designer and an artist.
EXPANDED MINDS explores “future design”.

It is about how to not only let other people decide about your future, but to actively create it yourself and therefore change yourself in the process.


Your tickets for the film festival and 3D-Expert symposium are available now.
