Videogame Lab

16 January 2024

RomeVideogameLab, from January 25th to 28th, 2024

In the spaces of the Rome Auditorium Parco della Musica - Ennio Morricone. This is the sixth edition for RomeVideoGameLab, an important anniversary for a growing festival that is shaping an increasingly recognizable identity

This edition also brings important innovations: the Festival is co -produced by Cinecittà and by Fondazione Musica per Roma with Qacademy as executive producer.

RVGL24 strengthens its cultural and educational vocation by presenting workshops, new applied games, Talks and meetings, because video games are also an effective tool for knowledge and learning. In fact, the technology and creativity of video games apply to all social fields: culture, science, environment, food, health, sport, custom.

Technological innovation will always be at the heart of the festival, intertwined with creative research. And the theme of the 2024 edition, “reality & simulation”, brings us to the “realm” of artificial generative intelligence, the metaverse and the avatars with new video games, insights and VR experiences.

This year the Festival firmly strengthens its vocation to the internationalization and enhancement of Made in Italy. Thanks to the presence of a delegation of foreign guests of extraordinary quality, Italian development studies will have the unique opportunity to expand their network with professionals, publishers and sector artists from every corner of the world: from Europe to America, from Asia to Africa. There will be opportunities to increase the business, and at the same time many Italian and foreign developers will have the opportunity to show their works to the general public in the Indie Showcase, an area designed to put professionals of the sector in contact with the enthusiasts.

Those who love eSports will be able to test themselves, those who prefer the wonders of Artificial Intelligence will be able to discuss, learn more and have virtual experiences in Roblox, and also meet avatars and find themselves in the metaverse; our very young audience will participate in the Minecraft workshops or will play with the Mario Kart racetrack.

Cinecittà and Musica per Roma with this edition of RVGL24 will pay specific attention to the technological innovation and to the young public, who for years has been following the festival, and also to the international scope of the initiative and to the works of Italian video game development studies.
