Showcase for Hi-Tech Wonders

By Neil Elkes

GIANT robots, a wall of sound and field of light are among the jaw dropping technological wonders on show at a city festival.

The creative minds behind Pixar's Wall-E, Cars and Toy Story films, Wallace and Grommit and the social network website Bebo, will make special talks at the free Hello Digital event from October 23 to 26 at Millennium Point.

But it will also offer the best creative digital talents the chance to showcase and develop their work.

Other highlights include an insight into digital animation, a Field of Light art installation, digital storytelling, horror film showcase and computer aided music performances.

The festival is joint funded by Birmingham City Council and Advantage West Midlands. For more information visit
