Indie Bits 2019 Submissions are Now Open. Deadline is February 8, 2019.
Indie Bits is an arts and education organization that aims to design and promote inclusive gaming experiences for all. Founded in Columbia, SC and focused on the Southeast, Indie Bits cultivates thoughtful production, education, and community oriented expression with regard to games, technology advancement, social outreach, and code-based learning. Building from their public exhibitions at the Indie Grits Film Festival, the Indie Bits leadership seeks to facilitate powerful creative gaming experiences via educational services, creative curation, and collective media literacy. Indie Bits features digital, physical, and virtual media ranging from casual to experimental. Simply put: if it’s interactive, independent, and southern — we want to see it.
