The Overkill is a 48 hours nonstop festival which regroups an art exhibition, a selection of indie games, an alternative movie program, live performance and many activities such as workshops, master class, talks… all selected around our theme and presented together in an original and immersive setting.
The Overkill is an open platform, a flexible space for creative minds to meet and an intense time to share thoughts and experience. With our partners we are bringing together artists, creative thinkers, developers, students and professionals to explore the edges of the gaming culture. Playing is the core element of our event, we believe game is a source of socializing, a diplomatic tool, a stress releaser, a way to learn or master things and an amazing way to spend our time! Our visitors are invited to participate, try out, watch debate and create, transforming the festival and his experience. It is our intention to present art and artists in a playful way, looking for new and real encounters. It is also our intention to use a popular tool (video games) and make our public more aware of its content, its power and its artistic manipulations.
“Come and play with us!”
