Visual Arts and Video Games
Video games are becoming more intertwined with the visual arts every day. There are numerous movies that are based on or that make references to video games. For this reason, this year’s screening program will focus on videos and short films that refer to or that are inspired by video games as well as feature length documentaries about them. The screenings, which will take place at the cinema hall of The Empire Project in Siraselviler, will feature films by numerous renowned directors and artists like Danny Ledonne, David Kaplan, Cao Fei and Juan Carlos Pineiro-Escoriaza. Machinimas that bring together video game footage and 3d animation techniques and present independent movie makers working on low budgets with novel creative opportunities will also constitute part of the screening program.
