Fortnite has wrapped the first film festival hosted by a video game, Short Nite. The free-to-access, 24-hour event included 12 animated shorts, such as Rich Webber's Bench, Kouhei Nakama's Makin' Moves, Simone Giampaolo and Francesco Mazza's Lynx & Birds, Ant Blades' Carpark, Nick Park's Creature Comforts and the Gobelins l'Ecole de l'Image project Oktopodi. Short Nite represented an unprecedented marketing opportunity, as the shorts were broadcast within a video game that, according to the figures provided by publisher Epic Games, has over 350 million registered players. The event kicked off on Saturday 20 February at 2 pm ET.

In particular, the movie will focus on a demigod’s quest for immortality and his rivalry – and then friendship – with wild man Enkidu.
