23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
VR Cinema Block VI Friday
Audiovisually but in a different manner. Formats that narrate and portray the real world while stepping out of the screen and building unique worlds through distinctive aesthetic principles.
Breathtaking immersive environments and narrations are being created for virtual reality. The VR cinema will screen 360° films, their tone ranging from popular science to strictly poetic or lyric, which use a documentary approach, animation or actors to depict both current stories and topics and historical insights. You can immerse yourself into the depths of oceans and space, but also into a fleeting space painted in watercolors or a spirited changing animation portraying the flight of the feminist movement at the beginning of the 20th century, hear both beautiful and thrilling stories from all corners of the world and fly through fragments of cities, memories or culturally-distant rituals. VR zone is located on the ground floor of DKO.
VR Zone is organised in cooperation with Go360.
