International Electronic Arts and New Media Festival
The Villette Digital festival is a joint initiative of the Cite des
Sciences, the Cite de la Musique and the Parc de la Villette. It is both a
showcase for major works from around the world and a forum for
experimentation and study. Its aim is to bring together projects directly
involved in the use of digital technologies and it encourages visitors to
share in many experiments during their entertaining, participative and
sensory experience. In this way, the festival's installations, concerts,
shows, games, workshops and digital cinema explore the impact of new
technologies on our everyday lives and the radical changes they are
bringing about in our cultural landscape.
