Level up and unleash the power of Canada's video game industry



Attracting nearly 22,500 participants, the Game Developers Conference (GDC) will gather the best video game developers from across the globe in San Francisco for a series of activities and conferences from March 25 to 29, 2013.

And Canada will be no exception. Being the third most important market when it comes to game development, Canada will be proudly represented at GDC with an impressive delegation of developers of all horizons.

This year again, Telefilm Canada, in partnership with the Canada Media Fund selected some 20 studios from coast to coast to demo Canadian talent from coast to coast with the Canadian Video Game Showcase.
