In partnership with the Independent Games Festival's organizers, the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne is running a free exhibit featuring a selection of IGF 2009 competition finalists and winners. The Best of IGF 2009 showcase invites visitors to not just view but also play ten indie games, some even projected on walls (Blueberry Garden, Night Sky, PixelJunk Eden, and Osmos).

ACMI sent over these photos from the show since it opened last December, showing kids and adults exploring the games and their concepts -- the gallery's curators say it's a popular exhibit for both experienced gamers and neophytes. The space also provides a pleasing sonic atmosphere with Osmos and NightSky playing over the speakers in different rooms (other game setups use headphones).

The Best of IGF 2009 showcase runs until February 15th, so you still have time to check it out if you're in the area! You can find more information on the exhibit and see the full list of games on display at ACMI's site. I've included more images of people playing the games after the break:
