David Cage at the Museo Nazionale del Cinema

July 2nd, 2024, 11:30 am - Aula del Tempio, Mole Antonelliana

On the occasion of the opening of VIDEO GAME ZONE, one of the first permanent areas in Italy and in the world to be entirely dedicated to video games within a national museum, there will be a Masterclass with David Cage, founder of Quantic Dream. A thoughtful artist with a career spanning three decades, he has constantly shown his capacity to innovate, creating such masterpieces as Fahrenheit (2005), Heavy Rain (2010), Beyond: Two Souls (2012) and Detroit: Become Human (2018). Cage will join, on Tuesday, July 2 from 11:30 a.m., a discussion with director Domenico De Gaetano and Fabio Viola, offering insight into his creative vision and exploring the convergences between cinema and video games.

“In my career, I always promoted the idea that video games are a form of creative expression, just like cinema or literature,” says Cage. “For 66 years, the Museo Nazionale del Cinema in Turin has explored cinema's societal impact and the opening of its inaugural permanent video game exhibit is a landmark moment for interactive media. As a creator, I am honored to have our games Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human showcased, and I am thrilled to commemorate the exhibit opening with a Masterclass. It will be the opportunity to discuss how video games and cinema influence each other to push the boundaries of storytelling”.

At the end of the Masterclass, David Cage will receive the Star of the Mole Award for his fundamental contribution and pioneering approach to narrative development at the intersection of cinema and video games.



For over 25 years, David Cage has been creating video games that are pioneering in interactive storytelling. His games enable players to make choices that affect the story, leading to emotionally charged experiences that encourage players to question their feelings and moral values. As the founder and creative mind behind the studio Quantic Dream, he has written and directed acclaimed titles including Omikron: The Nomad Soul, Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy, Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human, selling over 20 million games worldwide and winning over fifty international awards, including three BAFTAs.


The Masterclass is free of charge. Please reserve your ticket at:
