About Us

Our Story

CAMP is a Calgary-grown initiative, brought forward by Wild Forest in 2014, and further developed logistically through a long-standing friendship and collaboration with Toronto-based event producer, FITC. CAMP is entirely a love project put on annually to connect with the community at large and keep everyone current with industry development, art and innovations.

Our aim is to celebrate and explore digital culture. We educate, challenge and inspire our audience by giving a stage to renowned artists and professionals, hosting workshops, and creating networking opportunities. In addition, we also focus on bridging the gap between post-secondary and industry as well as support digital community-based initiatives.

The festival all begins with our curated creative and technical storytellers from around the world who share their passion, meet, interact and educate. CAMP takes shape because of the contributions from our sponsors and volunteers as well as the local and international artists and studios that lend a helping hand each year. Your participation does the rest.
