Institutional Presentation Statement
The association TRANSMEDIA IMMERSIVE UNIVERSITY (TIU) was created in 2011 by French audiovisual producers in order to widely promote transmedia works in France abroad. As such, TIU’s objectives are to bring together media professionals, particularly from the audiovisual, videogame and live action world, to promote their digital transition; to reveal young talents of webcreation through the TIU Lab – a pedagogic laboratory to professionalize the sector and accompany throughout the year the creation of student projects and their insertion into the market; and to introduce digital creation to the greatest number of people through the festival I LOVE TRANSMEDIA, which is held every year at La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris. On the occasion of the 2017 France-Colombia Year, TIU holds an exchange program on webcreation to develop collaborations between French and Colombian creators and producers and promote their work in both countries. In June, the French delegation will be present during ISEA2017 and next October I LOVE TRANSMEDIA festival will highlight Colombian webcreation in Paris as well.
