This year the Berlinale Film Festival and European Film Market made the Horizon section bigger and VR is a substantial part of it: VR Cinema at Marriott, VR NOW conference, VR Lounge at Berlinale Africa Hub with several discussions worth taking part on the current state of Cinematic VR.
VR At EFM
VR at EFM is represented in three different ways: The VR NOW Summit and the VRNEXT Investors Club at Horizon, as well as the EFM’s 360° VR Market Screenings.
VR Now Summit
The way how stories are told changes constantly. A new technology, or the rise of a new medium also alters forms of storytelling and audience expectations. One of the greatest changes in storytelling comes with immersive media – Virtual Reality and 360 video. The EFM VR NOW Summit at the Berliner Freiheit demonstrates how film, television and immersive media are all coming together.
The 2018 EFM Horizon edition showed that VR is continuously evolving into a viable section of filmmaking. In the upcoming 2019 VR NOW Summit we are excited to follow up VR’s latest developments in reach, monetization and much more.
Get excited about how entertainment is advancing today, get inspired by fantastic stories and opinions of international VR figureheads, and connect with content creators, producers and IP owners from both worlds.
VRNEXT Investors Club
For the first time at the 2019 VRNEXT Investors Club, selected content creators, platforms and distribution companies will present their ventures among others to financiers and technology experts who will discuss and assess their business proposition, investment readiness, and market fit. Equity investors and public funds, film producers, distributors, and broadcasters will exchange their views on state-of-the-art experiences, products and services in entertainment VR with sales agents, technicians, and VR specialists. The objective is to better understand which distribution methods and partners help to attract new audiences for immersive narratives.
