Workshops, and talks

Joue le jeu / Play-Along gives the floor to high-profile game designers, artists, and scholars, for a lively discussion about the surprising way in which games are connecting in surprising ways with the architecture around us.

Joue le jeu / Play Along will also feature musical, film and other events linked to, and inspired by current and emerging game culture.

Indie Game: the Movie

With the twenty-first century comes a new breed of struggling independent artist: the indie game designer. Refusing to toil for major developers, these innovators independently conceive, design, and program their distinctly personal games in the hope that they, too, may find success.

First-time filmmaking duo Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky capture the emotional journey of these meticulously obsessive artists who devote their lives to their interactive art. Four developers, three games, and one ultimate goal— to express oneself through a video game.
