NewImages XR Market

Two markets dedicated to digital creation professionals take place during the NewImages Festival, from 5 to 7 April 2023:

Distribution market:
XR Art Fair

The XR Art Fair is the first market entirely dedicated to the distribution of immersive and interactive works.

Within this framework, about a hundred creators will come to present their projects and/or their catalogue to future partners.

Thanks to this new programme, the NewImages Festival is positioning itself as the world’s first professional event entirely dedicated to the distribution of immersive and interactive works.

Co-production market: XR Development Market

A unique initiative in France, included in the NewImages XR Market, this market allows projects to find co-producers.

Through this innovative matchmaking programme, NewImages Hub intends to contribute to the development, structuring and strengthening of the digital creation ecosystem in order to support the sector – European and international – in a sustainable way.
