Digital Games in Romania

The first event in Southeast Europe devoted to links between art, education and techniques in the design and use of video games, ‘‘Digital Games – Clujotronic Games Edition’’ is a project supported by the Franco-German Cultural Fund.
The ‘‘Digital Games - Clujotronic Games Edition’’ event was held on September 17-20, 2015, in Cluj-Napoca, the European Capital of Youth in 2015.
New forms of creation halfway between art and technology, digital games were honored via a Game Jam – a contest consisting in setting up prototypes within a limited period of time -, roundtables, workshops on an introduction to video games for all ages (from school-age children to senior citizens), workshops with themes devoted to designing games, creating images, sound, on techniques and the pooling of experience alongside experts from France, Germany and Romania.
Installations, performances and concerts highlighted, throughout this festive weekend, the cross-discipline nature of the professions linked to digital creation, and encouraged, through the transversal nature of this edition, wide public attraction with regard to age and interest (players, digital art amateurs, young local designers, artists in training, etc.).
Organized on the initiative of the Institut français of Romania, the Goethe-Institut and German Cultural Center of Cluj, this unique event, focusing on video games, has been given the support of the Franco-German Cultural Fund. This Fund supporting Franco-German cooperation in third countries also gave its support to another project devoted to video games, Game Jam Palestine in May 2015.
