Invited community partners The Hand Eye Society who conceived of and collaborated with other TIFF Nexus partners to lead hands-on “creative jam” sessions that offered participants the chance to prototype innovative media and gaming experiences and showcase them to the Public and Industry.

    Liaison

    Act as point of contact for programme series. E.g., Shane Smith, TIFF’s Director Public Programmes and I were interviewed by PlayBack on the convergence of Film, digital, gaming; the article neatly sums up the rationale behind Nexus:
