The 2007 festival Screenings promises to be the best yet. We have a fantastic line up of games and sessions. If you want to find out how to get a job in the games industry, see what you’ll be playing this Christmas or meet the teams who are creating games for the latest generation of consoles, you have to be there.

Not limiting themselves to core and mainstream gamers, the EIEF is now open to even non-gamers, introducing a track for casual gaming and familiarization of gaming – the first step for going into a world of interactive entertainment.
