All of the French VR works at the 77th Venice Film Festival

As part of the 77th Venice International Film Festival, and as a result of the special circumstances resulting from the worldwide health crisis, the latest edition of Venice VR will be held entirely online on the platform Venice VR Expanded. France will be well represented this year, with seven films included in the festival selection!

Renowned as the most important event devoted to virtual reality in Europe, the Venice International Film Festival (September 2–12, 2020) has worked hard to put together the 4th annual edition of Venice VR. No less than six French immersive works are selected among a total of thirty works presented at the event!

The French films included account for one fifth of the linear works showcased in the festival's Official Competition. Among other works, we can highlight two productions by Atlas V, who will present Goodbye Mr. Octopus and Mirror: The Signal, a sensory drama played by Zita Hanrot. Floréal Films will also present two immersive works: Minimum Mass and The Hangman at Home - VR (Single User).

The director François Vautier will introduce his fourth immersive film, Recoding Entropia, produced by DA PROD, three years after the festival's selection of his film I Saw the Future at the first edition of Venice VR in 2017.

The production company Les Produits Frais, whose film Isle of the Dead VR by Benjamin Nuel was awarded the prize for Best VR Story in 2018, will offer a preview screening of Meet Mortaza VR, the latest VR film by Joséphine Derobe, to be showcased out of competition.

Furthermore, the director Fabienne Giezendanner will have her first VR film, Dreamin'Zone produced by Zéro de Conduite Productions, screened out of competition at this 4th edition of Venice VR.
