Level 5: Mob Fest - Mobile Gaming Festival @ Mediamatic

Mediamatic is hosting a three day festival about mobile gaming at the Mediamatic Bank (Vijzelstraat 69, Amsterdam), which is the closing event of their impressive Arcade exhibition. Day one and two are hosted by GAP member Michiel de Lange.

From the Mediamatic site:
March 23rd: Thinking Mobile

How can mobile games excel beyond the level of ‘play once and never use again’? In other words: what makes a good mobile game? We'll be speaking with Kars Alfrink of Hubbub, Richard Birkin (UK) of Mudlark, and NIMk artist in residence Duncan Speakman (UK).
March 24th: Doing Mobile
Games are an easy way of addressing complex issues and igniting people to get involved. How can mobile games contribute to a better future? What good can a mobile game do? Louise Down (UK) of Tate Modern, Karel Millenaar of FourceLabs and Emer Beamer of Butterfly Works will be joining us in discussing these questions.
March 25th: Ignite Amsterdam 7
Ignite is a fast-paced and merciless evening, full of fresh ideas and clever insights. Speakers get five minutes to present an idea or project. They make use of twenty slides that auto-advance every fifteen seconds. The seventh edition is all about mobile games. We'll be speaking to 15 game developers, journalists, artists and programmers.
