Cannes, February 2001 Each year, Milia takes place in Cannes. This world’s interactive content market is an event where professionals can do buisness in online entertainment for Internet, wireless and interactive TV. But it’s also the opportunity to discover original and creative content.
During the milia exhibition, a showcase called Fast Lane festival is organised. This exciting showcase of new digital entertainment brought to life the latest innovations in online entertainment for Internet, wireless and interactive TV through 14 quick-fire presentations.
We enjoyed the Niko Stumpo expermimental works and obviously his website. Subakt introduced their different creations for Cypress Hill, Jamiroquai and the french rap band NTM.
Inside the exhibition itself, the new talents Competition takes place. The New Talent Competition is designed to acknowledge students who excel in interactive content and technology development. It also gives interactive entertainment and new media professionals with the opportunity to discover the brightest new development and research talent from around the globe as well as offering a forum for recruting new talent.
Avi Haltovsky “Papercut”
