Filmby Aarhus is at the forefront of ensuring the dissemination of new initiatives and technologies to local partners and companies. At the Impact Tour to Filmby Aarhus attendees gain insights into what the future holds for the development of film and gaming production.
Filmby Aarhus is an epicenter of creative development within the media industry. With more than 100 companies gathered in Filmby Aarhus’s buildings their business park covers several aspects of the media industry, but primarily have companies that work within film, games, and media.
Filmby Aarhus is located by the dock and harbour near the city centre, but their activities extend to a wider extent by virtue of their involvement in all of Jutland. They are part of Aarhus Municipality’s investment in the film- and media area and are in this way an important element in focusing on the city’s as well as Jutland’s cultural strengths through film and media production.
With their latest venture, ‘MiXR Lab’ Filmby Aarhus has opened the doors to a new studio with cutting-edge technology in Extended Reality (Virtual Reality + Augmented Reality), 3D Scanning, Virtual production and Motion Capture. MiXR Lab was created in collaboration with various partners and will be accessible to the many tenants in Filmby Aarhus’ business park as well as other film, game and XR companies in and around Aarhus. The investment is meant to contribute to further development of the local gaming, film and XR environment.
Filmby Aarhus hosts various knowledge sharing and networking events, workshops, open labs and more. Here, companies get access to explore multiple technologies and equipment. This practice supports the local development among companies in and around Aarhus as well as the continued development of the film, media, and gaming industry. By sharing their insights, platform, and equipment, Filmby Aarhus rethinks how companies can benefit from each other and thereby help to push the boundaries of what is possible. In addition, Filmby Aarhus supports new entrepreneurs by having developed an incubation environment where they allow new companies to access and share resources as well as give them the opportunity to give and receive professional feedback from industry partners.
At the impact tour attendees will be shown around by a house representative, will have the opportunity to see the inside of the newly founded MiXR Lab, and get a close look at the cutting-edge technology. Attendees will be presented with insights into the film, media and gaming industry and thereby gain an insight into what the future holds.
