Animation, Video Games And Digital Art
BITBANG is a non-profit organization, created in 2014, for the promotion and dissemination of avant-garde animation, video games and digital art. We are a platform that disseminates and promotes experimental, risky and authorial artistic proposals, and gives rise to diverse voices.
BITBANG has its namesake International Festival, which has been held annually in the city of Buenos Aires since 2015. Every year we present global leaders and discover new talents. We promote the development of creativity in animation, video games and digital art by offering workshops and master classes with the most visionary artists. In our editions there are projections, installations, immersive art, collective and collaborative creation activities, exhibitions, video games and parties, in a space that encourages exchange between artists, professionals and enthusiasts.
In addition, in 2017, we created a Club that brings the community together through meetings throughout the year. In our parties there are arcades and facilities that coexist with animations and visuals to the rhythm of the music of DJs and bands, in which there are sometimes exhibitions, fairs and karaoke.
We also put together weekly screenings, workshops and even an art camp, because we believe that the arts are an integral part of life and that active participation in culture contributes to a peaceful coexistence.
BITBANG Festival and BITBANG Club provide access to quality artistic content and experiences for expression, learning, reflection and play. We provide a space for experimentation, co-creation, innovation, dialogue and the birth of projects. We create a meeting point between animation, video games and digital art, which attracts curious minds from all over the world, who participate to discover, be inspired, connect and share. We are a restless community that does not stop doing.
