THIS is an annual media festival in Aarhus, Denmark. A platform for storytellers to share fantastic stories within the fields of streaming, series, games, film, television, immersive technologies and innovative business. We bring together visionaries across industries and diverse audiences to celebrate the power of storytelling.
THIS curates innovative and interactive experiences, and introduces new technology and ideas through talks, panels, premieres and exhibitions and is a platform for cross-pollination among creative professionals. People, who all share the same desire to discuss the challenges of tomorrow and to improve the quality of the stories we produce and distribute.
THIS is a source for inspiration for everyone who wants to tell stories you remember. Stories with social relevance and cultural impact. Stories that echo through society and inspire dialogue and debate.
