  • 12 hours of sculpting workshops with world-renowned sculptors;
  • 18 hours of live drawing sessions with professional models.

The festival's activities will be contributed to by speakers from some of the most well known companies in both gaming and film industries (Ubisoft, Capcom, Blizzard Entertainment).
