Crafting Worlds / The Conference

06 september 15:00

For decades the game and film industry in Sweden have been crafting imaginative and vivid worlds for audiences all over the world. Now it’s time for them to meet at Crafting Worlds!

Crafting Worlds is an event where world builders from film, games and other media meet to be inspired and learn from each other.

Following the success of its first edition in December 2017, Crafting Worlds will host an afternoon session during THE FESTIVAL with guest speakers from both Film and Game Industry talking about how to create worlds and franchises that span across different media.

After the event, we invite everyone to join us for a mingle at the same venue, so you can keep the conversation going 😉
As usual we will give away drink tickets to the first 50 people to arrive!
