PlayUK gets creative

  • PlayUK

17th January 2018

The festival, which last year played the same film simultaneously in six Western Balkan cities, is returning to the region with an expanded programme.

The second edition of our unique regional initiative PlayUK Arcadia aims to support and connect young creatives from the Western Balkans and the UK.

This time round, PlayUK goes beyond film with a more dynamic and diverse programme of screenings, gaming and VR showcases, panels, workshops and networking opportunities for artists and creatives from any other sector.

Attending from the UK will be Cambridge-based games developer Alex Johansson, whose game Vaccination is part of PlayUK’s exhibition; Guardian games journalist and author Jordan Erica Webber; and Robin Baumgarten, an independent games designer who started his career researching Artificial Intelligence.

The event will start in Sarajevo (18-21 Jan) and then travel to Belgrade (22-25 Feb) and Tirana (15-18 Mar).
