This year the Maine International Film Festival will pull back the curtain of the cinematic experience with an all-ages, interactive art exhibition exploring the world of film. MIFFONEDGE will be held from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday, July 14, through Saturday, July 21, at the Common Street Arts gallery, 93 Main St. in Waterville.

The exhibition will feature a suite of immersive sensory experiences including a trip through a virtual reality forest.

Headlining MIFFONEDGE is the Brazilian new media artist duo VJ Suave, returning once more to MIFF with a virtual reality exhibit, “Floresta Encantada,” featuring a magical Virtual Reality forest that will respond to gestures and movements. Maine artist Susan Bickford adds to the experience with her project (Stillness) 18, which asks participants to meditate on the nature of water as they explore an entrancing cycle of a reversing falls.

New to MIFFONEDGE in 2018 is a collaborative series of pop-up art activities with The Children’s Discovery Museum that can challenge families to experiment, tinker and get a bit messy.
