Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival 2019 – VR Corner
The Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival is a major French platform for fantastic cinema, and one of Europe’s most comprehensive genre events. The Festival’s main focus is on new productions of international fantastic films, but also included are sections for thrillers, noir films and black comedies, and for video games and virtual-reality cinema. The Festival also hosts multiple film revivals, a sign of its firm commitment to cinema heritage.
In 2012, the Festival organisers introduced a complementary strand at the city’s digital arts centre with the focus on video games, digital creation and virtual-reality experiences. Highlights are the Indie Game Contest for independent video-game developers; installations by digital creators from our artist-in-residency programme; and a VR film corner, showcasing the latest trends in the 360° world of virtual-reality cinema.
