The first European Machinima Festival will be held with De Montfort University's Institute of Creative Technologies from October 12 to October 14. It'll have workshops, an awards ceremony, etc.
Prof Andrew Hugill, director of the Leicester university's creative technologies institute, said:
"Machinima is a phenomenon which is capturing the imagination of individuals and communities including games players and filmmakers.
"We aim to bring these communities together and open up the exciting possibilities of Machinima to a wider audience."
