The Overkill Festival

The Overkill is a playful art, games and film festival focused on the impact of digital culture on our society. The festival showcases a selection of interactive and participative art installations, indie/arthouse games, presents an alternative film program, experimental live performances and activities such as workshops, network meet-ups, talks, hybrid symposium…

Playfulness and gaming are at the heart of the program of the festival. We bring several disciplines together in an immersive experience to explore our theme from multiple, and diverse mediums. During the festival, these are exhibited together, without hierarchy, trying to confront the content and the mediums with each other in order to create debates. During the festival, visitors and makers are challenged to play, look around, participate, discuss, listen and exchange opinions, their experience is an important focus in our way of curating the event.
