“The CIFF Intermission Arcade is set to be the prime hangout for gamers at this year’s CIFF festival. Having grown our School of Games & Creative Design at VFS over the past 10 years, there isn’t anywhere else we would want to be this September. This event will be as much a learning opportunity for us as it will be a source of great entertainment, and we can’t wait to see video game lovers unite at CIFF Intermission Arcade.”-Christopher Mitchell – Head of School of Games & Creative Design, VFS
