SIGGRAPH 2014  has teamed up with Media Indie Exchange  (The MIX) to bring the first-ever SIGGRAPH indie game showcase to its Exhibition, 12-14 August at the Vancouver Convention Centre. As part of this special collaboration with The MIX, attendees will have access to exclusive presentations ?with the game developers themselves on indie projects featuring a wide variety of cutting-edge graphics and gameplay that in some instances is still in the experimental stages.
?The MIX brings a high level of talent, creativity, and quality to the table. We are excited to bring this experience to the SIGGRAPH community and put a spotlight on it,? remarked SIGGRAPH 2014 Conference Chair Dave Shreiner. ?Hopefully, speaking with indie developers first-hand will inspire individuals and small teams in attendance to ?go for it? with their own projects.?
The MIX team has been organizing showcases for independent game developers to present their projects to media and industry leaders since 2012. SIGGRAPH 2014 will mark the first MIX showcase outside of the United States.
?The MIX at SIGGRAPH 2014 shows the ongoing impact of indie studios on the industry,? said Justin Woodward of The MIX. ?This event provides another platform where we can help share advances from this world with new audiences.?
The MIX lineup during SIGGRAPH 2014 will be released in the weeks leading up to the conference. For the latest updates visit the Conference web site  or stay tuned to SIGGRAPH 2014 on Facebook  and Twitter . Access to the Exhibition starts at $50 USD and is available online.
