British Columbia’s interactive and digital media industry is one of the most dynamic engines in the B.C. economy and is a key driver of skilled jobs that will define the future of the province.
As part of Creative Industries Week 2021, DigiBC is presenting Creative Technology Day on April 14 to highlight some of the incredible stories behind B.C.’s diverse and talented creative tech industry. Covering animation, VFX, video games, and VR/AR/XR, DigiBC will be showcasing work from studios ranging from local startups to multinational brands who call British Columbia home. Follow along here!
