The Overkill festival
is a playful festival based in Enschede bringing gaming, interactive art, fiction and experiment together to question and celebrate our digital culture and its impact on our society. In 2021 the festival is a 10 days physical and online event, with workshops, exhibition, screenings, talks, challenges, meetups… The chosen topic is a common thread that links the different media and programs together, inviting participants and visitors to play and reflect together.

Collective Masquerade
Welcome to the celebration of fluid collectives, where you don’t have to be defined by your gender, your preferences or your background. Bring them on, we don’t want to hide or to ignore them either. Let’s confront each other's heritage and re learn how to care, looking for our common ground. The Overkill “Collective Masquerade” invites artists, curators, game developers and creative minds to explore how we can redefine ourselves as individuals, species, society, and connected beings.
