There's a new Independent Games Festival getting started up in Australia, called iFest, going up in April in Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne.
For more information, check out http://www.ifest.com.au/.
IGDA Sydney's definitely going to be a part of it and a lot of the same people who've done amazing work on Game Jams and other events around here are helping put this on and I think this is a great idea to get people together and talking . . . there's no better way to get ideas and collaborations going.
Unfortunately my new team won't have anything to present yet by April, but we'll definitely be coming along to see how things are going nonetheless.
