French VR works to be presented at the Tribeca Film Festival

No less than three virtual reality productions will represent France at the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival, to be held in New York from April 19 through 30.

The Tribeca Film Festival has unveiled the list of films selected for its tow immersive programs, Virtual Arcade and Storyscapes. This year, three French productions will be included in the competition, making France the most strongly represented country at the event after the USA:

While Sergent James has already been presented this year at Berlin, Alteration and Unrest will be screened in world premieres.

Tribeca was one of the first festivals to include these new creative works, and for the past ten years the New York event has played a key role as a forecaster of future success. Last year, the French production companies Okio Studio and Agat Films presented their respective films I, Philip and Notes on Blindness, which went on to triumph on the international circuit.

With support from UniFrance, the producer Avi Amar and the creators of Unrest, Alexandre Perez and Jérôme Blanquet, will travel to the festival to present their films. This year, however, the competition will be fierce, with the French works coming up against the Oscar-winning filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow's first foray into the VR medium, as well as the latest animated work by the creators of Madagascar!
