NewImages : the festival of digital creation and virtual worlds from 19 to 23 June in Paris!
Images should not only be watched and analyzed: they should be lived, felt and palpable. Forward-looking and cutting-edge, the NewImages Festival provides a fresh approach to innovative creative techniques.
Focusing on content and artistic creation, NewImages is at the forefront of new trends in media. Building on the transmedia creations of yesterday, and the XR formats of today, tomorrow’s innovation are still beyond our minds’ grasp… NewImages is constantly evolving, transforming from year to year, to adapt to fresh innovations and, above all, new forms of storytelling.
