Vector Festival is a participatory and community-oriented initiative dedicated to showcasing digital games and creative media practices. Presenting works across a dynamic range of exhibitions, screenings, performances, lectures, and workshops, Vector acts as a critical bridge between emergent digital platforms and new media art practice. Vector Festival was founded in 2013 as the “Vector Game Art & New Media Festival” by an independent group of artists and curators, Skot Deeming, Clint Enns, Christine Kim, Katie Micak, Diana Poulsen, and Martin Zeilinger. From the start Vector Festival was unique in its inclusion of game based work alongside new media disciplines. In 2015 Vector Festival announced that longtime presenting partner, InterAccess, would be taking over responsibility for the festival as part of its regular programming, with members of the original team, Skot Deeming and Martin Zeilinger, returning as Curators. Historically held in February, the fourth annual Vector Festival was moved to the summer to encourage participatory public events and outdoor interventions.
