Organised by Arts&Publics, the Zinne Games Festival focuses on the artistic, social and local dimensions of video games. Culturally impactful, rich by its communities and varied in its practice, video games will show themselves in a new light through a large array of activities over two days of discoveries and exchanges.

The event will be composed of different zones, including a “Belgian video game” zone, to discover local productions and projects, a “workshop” zone to create, stream and learn by doing, an “arcade” zone, to (re)discover retro games and new ones and a “conference” zone to learn more about the representation of women in video games or the insides of the video game industry. In the evenings, concerts that ingeniously blend gaming and music will delight music lovers.

The festival is aimed at anyone interested in video games. Whether a creator, a pro or a novice gamer, everyone is welcome. Family-friendly and inclusive, the Zinne Games Festival is adapted to all ages.

Essentially, the Zinne Games Festival promotes the cultural richness of Belgian video games and encourages exchange between professionals and their audiences. Entry to this festival is free of charge on both Saturday May 6th and Sunday May 7th.
