In addition to the festival, throughout the year IndieCade will host a series of global exhibitions, salons, screenings, and events aimed at encouraging, publicizing and cultivating innovation and artistry in interactive media, helping to create a public perception of games as rich, diverse, artistic, and culturally significant.
