A new competitive section dedicated to VR works has been created for this year's Munich International Film Festival (June 26 to July 7), with France designated as guest country for this first edition.
For its 37th edition, the Munich International Film Festival is launching the Virtual Worlds section, a new competitive showcase for narrative virtual reality productions. A major player in the international scene for virtual reality and immersive works, France has been chosen as the country to be highlighted this year.
With seven works selected, French creations account for one third of the section's program:
The majority of these works have already attracted attention this year—and picked up awards—at high-profile international festivals, including Sundance, SXSW, and Tribeca. With support from UniFrance, the duo Chloé Rochereuil and Victor Agulhon will travel to the event to present their production about Notre-Dame Cathedral.
