TILBURG - On Wednesday 15 March and Thursday 16 March the Tilburg Theater ‘De NWE Vorst’ is going to be the place to be for everybody who is interested in graphic design during Playgrounds06 Audiovisual Arts Festival.

These two days will be filled with masterclasses, screenings, presentations and debates with great names in the world of digital image production. The festival will end with a VJ-battle in a special edition of ‘The Birthday of Jasmijn’ and the presentation of the Playgrounds06 awards.

During the festival regional, national and international productions will compete in several competitions. The first Playgrounds06 Awards will be given to the best (inter)national showreel in ‘Showmotion06 Best Showreel’ and the best (inter)national short in ‘Best Digital Short’.
