Join the greatest gaming spectacle in Canadian history on April 29 to May 1, 2016. EGLX will be our country’s first foray into the world of large-scale gaming conventions, representing three distinct pillars of gaming culture:
Festival: For you, the fans. Online celebrities, cosplay, tabletop, arcades, family zone, parties, tons of vendors and shops – EGLX will be completely packed with amazing content. We couldn’t have pulled it off without the community’s neverending support, and we can’t wait to meet you all!
Makers: Who creates all these games, and how do they do it? Come meet the stars from Toronto’s thriving Indie scene, try new and unreleased titles, watch student game designers at work, listen to esteemed speakers, and meet the Level Up finalists in our gaming pitch competition.
Tournaments: Lifeblood of the hardcore crowd, and the reason some games are now considered bona fide sports. Compete in one of our many tournaments or watch the pros push themselves to the limit. Finals will take place on a professionally designed, mind-blowing stage.
EGLX 2016 is a must-see event for anyone with even a passing interest in gaming (and it’s run by the most unbiased, attractive people you’re ever likely to meet). Come be a part of something special.
Rau’s doc will open the festival with an industry-only screening on April 28 at 7 p.m. at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, followed by an opening night public screening immediately afterwards at 9:45 p.m.
