“At last, blue movies on my phone!”

An anonymous digital collective will appear during the Wellington Fringe Festival this year. Using blue tooth enabled cell phones, palms and laptops Fringe Festival goers will be able to share and view photos and movie masterpieces.

“We hope to create a digital environment that allows people to share the experience of life, events and the creative nature of Wellington when the festival takes place” Pete McVicar of Redvespa

Two permanent blue movie locations and a roaming Redvespa will exist for the festival where you will be able to contribute your own photos or movies to the festival or browse the hot talent of Natcoll graduates.
