A search for the "next now" shapes the program of this year's Pause Digital Festival

This event has finished

Feel like you’re always a few steps behind when it comes to the digital world? This month’s Pause Digital Festival will teach you a thing or two with screenings, installations, workshops, projections onto some of the city's most iconic buildings and panel discussions that question what's next in digital creativity. Now in its second year, Pause Festival tears global industry leaders away from their desks just long enough for them to share their most interesting endeavours of the past 12 months.

Sound Mapping With Soundcloud is an experiment that invites Melburnians to record and upload their favourite sounds from around town. These sounds will be used to create a sound map of Melbourne. Digital professionals will be interested in PauseStage, a one-day event with talks from innovators such as Rick Chen, the co-founder of Australia’s first crowd-funding site, and Director of Vimeo Festival+Awards/Creative Director of Vimeo, Jeremy Boxer. (Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. Sat Nov 10, 10am-5pm. $160-$260).

Pause Festival isn’t just for tech nerds: there are 14 screenings of documentary, short and animated film. Forget the Film Watch the Titles is a beautiful retrospective on design in the recent credit sequences (Hoyts Melbourne Central. 9.30pm. $13-$18. Nov 10). Another session to catch is the screening of Lovesong, a British play filmed in HD quality so vivid it is like being there in the auditorium (State Library of Victoria. Sun Nov 11, 7pm. $13-$18).

With a world-class selection of digital professionals gathered in one place, keeping up to speed with technology has never been so chic.
