Film to Pixel

Adapting Movies to Games

The exhibition Film to Pixel showcases games that were released to a variety of critical and public reactions. Each game developed with its own set of unique challenges based on the film it was adapting. Whether the developers were trying to redefine a genre to match its source material, or live up to the games contemporaries with little budget and an overbearing license to use. The exhibit asks visitors to understand these difficulties and celebrate the triumphs of these games’ creators.
