Best Game Video Award 2016
Almost all games contain some kind of movies. These can be trailers, intros or movies that tell fragments of the story – and they tend to be better or worse. The best ones are worth promoting and awarding – this is why we are preparing a contest for the best films from games of 2016.

In the Palace Cinema we will host screenings of selected videos and the Best Game Video 2016 awards will be chosen.
