No matter what you’re passionate about — whether it’s making movies or watching them, playing games or creating them — TERMINUS is where you want to be.

TERMINUS empowers today’s creators by providing them with the education, experience and opportunities they need to develop and produce entertaining and impactful work. TERMINUS Conference + Festival is a one-of-a-kind event for emerging interactive media creators and industry experts. It’s four days of workshops, screenings, video game free play and tournaments, networking, parties, and more.

The Conference

The Conference is the beating heart of TERMINUS, with nearly 75 hours of workshops and panels on filmmaking, game development, and interactive. The TERMINUS 2016 Conference featured over 80 speakers including actors, directors, writers, producers, animators, and composers from productions such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America, Archer, Dragonball Z, Mortal Kombat, FX’s Atlanta, Halt & Catch Fire, and Do the Right Thing — plus presenters from some of the biggest media brands and production houses in the world.

Additional workshops and panels are being added all the time — so check back often!

And we can’t forget about the Festival

The  Festival is the soul of TERMINUS. Packed with screenings, free game play, gaming tournaments, expos and parties, it’s a celebration of all things film and gaming. In 2016 TERMINUS kicked the festivities off with a Welcome to Atlanta party and closed out the weekend partying Campus Movie Fest style. The game room featured four decades of playable consoles, starting with legacy systems, like the Atari 2600, that launched a $100 billion industry leading all the way up to the current generation of Xbox One and PS4. The awesomeness continued with a fight-to-the-finish Super Smash Melee tournament. Last, but definitely not least, over 200 short films and features were screened at the Landmark Midtown Arts Cinema and SCADshow.

TERMINUS Conference + Festival is taking place June 22-25, 2017 in Atlanta, GA. Grab your tickets here!
