For the third year in a row, FILE Games Rio is bringing together animation, installations and video games to the halls of Flamengo’s Oi Futuro. Brazil’s largest technology and art festival, FILE explores the connection between art and video games through 'Game Lover', an exhibition named after the phrase that has been the bane of gamers since the advent of pinball machines: Game Over. Through pieces like 'Journey', a visually compelling indie video game that focuses on attaining serenity over saving princesses, and 'Efecto Mariposa', a volcanic ash display that yields to the touch, the exhibition invites visitors to consider avant-garde games as art and imaginative installations as games. 

Curated by multimedia artist Ricardo Barreto and Paula Perissinotto, 'Game Lover' also features the unmissable 'Starry Night', an animation that allows viewers to use their fingers to interact with Van Gogh's famous painting and bring his thick, organic brush strokes to life. With works from both international and Brazilian artists and game developers, the showing gives Carioca audiences a comprehensive overview of the latest cutting-edge developments in digital art.
