The Conference used to be in June and called Moving Images. This year we decided to move it to the end of August. One of the main reasons was the Malmö Festival. With lots of bands playing, a lot of people on the streets and all kinds of happenings in every corner of the city centre it”s a fun time to be in town.
To get the festival more of media touch we decided to organize some activities with the festival. The screening of PressPausePlay (August 23rd), the preview of Försvunnen (August 25th) and the 3d workshop Be your own souvenir (August 25-26th).
Here’s some of the events we think you should pay closer attention to during the days of The Conference (everything is free of charge!):
18:00 – AUDIORAMA ARS ACUSTICA (Palladium, Stortorget)

20:00 – (Orkanen, Posthusplatsen)
