What’s Pixelodeon?

Pixelodeon is an annual independent video festival recognizing innovation, inspiration, and community in global online video. 2007 was our inaugural year!

On June 9-10, 2007 in Los Angeles, California at the American Film Institute (AFI) we screened over 300 videos, heard from four keynote speakers, watched sessions assembled by two dozen curators, and saw several hundred people interested in independent media get together over two days to celebrate the diversity and talent of online video content. If you wanted to see what’s happening online and meet the people who are making it happen, this was the place to be.

Three theaters screened videos on movie-theater sized screens. Two of the theaters screened videos selected by curators according to a theme they have selected. The third theater was the DIY Theater, which was curated by you (yes, YOU) from what you wrote on our wiki.
