The ION Festival has decided to postpone its three-day Summit on the convergence of animation, games and film. Originally to take place this weekend (Oct 29-31) during the film festival, the Summit will now become its own separate event in spring 2005.
In a statement the event organizers said, With a number of activities taking place this weekend, ION feels that it is best if festival-goers are not split between the Festival and Summit, allowing them to get the best experience of the talent and creativity that IONs filmmakers have to offer.
As a stand-alone event, the Summit will be able to fully address and explore the issues that face converging art forms. Industry professionals and attendees will have the dedicated time to discuss the changing state of technology, and examine together the possibilities of the dynamic potentials of this new state of media.
The rescheduled Summit date will be announced in the new year.
