Devoted to innovative and interactive forms of written expression, this event introduces to pros and mainstream audiences alike the latest developments in cultural content.
Over the course of four days, I LOVE TRANSMEDIA invites you to take part in an event devoted to new forms of written expression. This is the chance to check out the various (r)evolutions taking place in the cultural world, namely the increasing porosity at work between the media of television, cinema, the Web, video games, and live performances.
A whole series of discussions with special guests provides the opportunity to ponder and question the challenges brought about by new technologies and the new ways they are being used.
