9 PM Supernova Regeneration – Nightfall presented by Denver Digerati
Things start to become a little more surreal and sensory with Nightfall, perfect for when the sun has gone down and the spirit goes a little wild. The selected animations amplify some of the most distinct attributes of digital tools and the aesthetics promoted in the hands of pioneering artists. Animations in this program represent the broad spectrum of Supernova’s signature programs. Nightfall includes the most recent music video from this year’s Solo Artist Spotlight featuring: AUJIK, an entity based in Japan, whose work is an outstanding representation of the Regeneration theme.

8 PM Debut Community Screening of “Sons of Toledo” short documentary presented by Glacity Theatre Collective followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and featured barbers
SONS OF TOLEDO
After waking up to an early morning phone call giving him the news his brother was killed, a Toledo barber navigates the obstacles of his day before going to the funeral home that night to give the young man his final cut.
The film was born out of the stories of Toledo’s Black owned barber shops and the ProMedica Men’s Health/Barber Shop program. It features community centered stories with community sourced actors and was created through the generosity of ProMedica, Barb and Randy Oostra, Turning Row LLC, Robin Charney, Glacity Theatre Collective and the Arts Commission.
