Face Fighter to be Featured in TIFF Next Wave!

April 12, 2012

TIFF Next Wave

You heard that right, folks! Super Conveniently Head-Controlled Face Fighter 10987654321 (or simply “Face Fighter” for short), an interactive video game installation created by Jonathan S├ęguin and myself is going to be featured in TIFF Next Wave from May 10th – 12th. More specifically, our piece will be shown in the “Future Games” exhibit.

They accentuate the film component quite a bit in their advertising, but it’s good to know that video game innovation is being celebrated in the Toronto cultural arts scene. Rest assured, TIFF has given our game a “G” rating, so feel free to bring along your youngins.

From the Future Games website:
“Future Games presents a selection of the country’s most challenging and innovative video games made by post-secondary students. A hands-on play session at TIFF Bell Lightbox will be followed by a panel discussion, giving high school students a chance to engage with the creators and discuss game and interactive media design opportunities at Canadian post-secondary institutions.”

You can see more about the exhibition, as well as the other four games being featured alongside Face Fighter on their website.
