Edinburgh Interactive Festival is a day-long extravaganza of video-gaming, recruitment opportunities, screenings and talks, taking place alongside the Edinburgh Interactive Conference, a who's-who of the gaming industry with talks by influential games developers and company managers.

This year, the public programme takes place on Sat 11 Aug, with the conference on Thu 9 & Fri 10 Aug, right in the midst of Edinburgh's August festivals bonanza. Speakers in 2011 included Eidos founder Ian Livingstone, Channel 4's Jo Twist, Art Director of Straandlooper Animation Kevin Beimers and many more.
