This Week: Vidfest, May 21 — 24, VIGS, May 21 - 22
This week the Vancouver International Game Summit, and Vancouver International Digital Festival, return once again to enlighten and inform the technology and entertainment industry here in the city. Not even a full 12 months since last year's events, the popularity of both Vidfest, and VIGS continues to grow with each year and have become a 'must attend' for those working in the digital entertainment field, with Vidfest being more geared towards film, animation, and web sectors, while VIGS is solely focused on the game industry.
Notable individuals from local and international companies will be giving lectures, and informative discussions. The winners of the Popvox Awards will also be announced, followed by a Gala.
If you're an experienced industry professional, or even a student, both these events are a great way to learn about these thriving industries, and to expand on your network of industry contacts.
Vancouver Game Summit takes place this year at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. Vidfest on the other hand will be taking place at various venues on Granville Island, with Receptions, and Gala's taking place at the Vancouver Art Gallery, and Great Northern Way Campus.
