Igor Simic completes the international jury at AFV 2023
The multidisciplinary artist who won an award at AFV in 2010 for his first short is the co-founder and creative director of demagog studio, which is primarily active in game design.
The team at Alternative Film Video is excited to announce Igor Simic as the final member of the 2023 international competition jury. Simic will work with his colleagues on the jury to compile the list of outstanding achievements in the international competition. He will also give a talk during the festival on art and game design.
Simic was born and raised in Belgrade but completed his studies at Columbia University in New York. This year his studio is releasing the game Highwater, which continues the socially-critical futurist trilogy beginning with Golf Club: Wasteland and The Cub. In 2022 his visual art was featured as part of Manifesta 14, while his video game The Cub was an official selection as part of the gaming section at Tribeca Film Festival. Simic is represented by Galerie Anita Beckers.
In addition to game design Simic’s practice includes photography, writing and objects. He has been making short videos since the beginning of his professional career and he is currently developing his debut feature-length film script. We are excited to welcome Simic back to the festival and look forward to introducing him to a new audience at Alternative Film Video.
Watch for more updates from team AFV. Notifications will soon be sent to submitting artists and the selections for the international competition will be announced shortly following that.
