VR at the Venice Film Festival

Even prior to the kick off, there has been lot of buzz around this year’s Venice film festival as they celebrate their 74th edition. Hopeful stars and filmmakers prepare to showcase their works including Chinese artist, Ai Weiwei, who has bolstered a growing reputation in recent years. However, not all attention will be focused on the films premiering throughout the week, as this year the festival will be launching Venice VR for the very first time. This new initiative is a competition of virtual reality works to be held on its own island, 50 meters from the city centre and will make the festival the first cinematographic event of its kind and scale. The kick-off date is on the 30th of August and is most definitely tipped to stand out so don’t miss out on this year’s highlights.
