The co-production model that is quite common in films and series has not really been adopted within the game industry. Last year, the Flemish VAF/Gamefund and the Dutch Creative Industries Fund joined forces to change this by bringing game developers from Flanders and the Netherlands closer together. This year, we literally bring developers interested in co-development together at INDIGO.
On 21 June, a group of Flemish developers will travel to Utrecht for the Dutch game business event INDIGO. During the day, the Flemish devs can network extensively with Dutch developers. In the evening of the 21st, the delegation will travel to Utrecht city centre for a networking dinner with Dutch developers that are interested in co-development with Flemish developers.
INDIGO is a game business event organised by Dutch Game Garden. The event consists of three parts: the Discover showcase is a curated showcase of (Dutch) games. There is the Talks programme to learn everything you want to know about game design, -business, -tech, -art, -marketing, and serious games. Via the MeetToMatch platform, you can plan meetings with other INDIGO participants.
At reduced cost
The costs for transport, accommodation and INDIGO tickets are partly funded by VAF and the Stimulation Fund. So you’ll participate at a greatly reduced rate. The networking dinner in the evening of 21 June is at the invitation of VAF and the Dutch Creative Industries Fund, and therefore completely free of charge.
