EXPERIENCE CINEMA VR
EXPERIENCE CINEMA VR
The Cinema Galeries, UGC Belgium, Immersia Films and Poolpio production - Immersive Contents Agency are glad to present the second edition of EXPERIENCE, the one and only virtual reality (VR) festival in Belgium. It will take place at CINEMA GALERIES, UGC of Brouckère from June 21st to 25th.
Today, we see things in BIG and we need you guys to make our dream come true : create the very first VR cinema in Belgium!
But first, what is VR exactly?
Virtual Reality is a set of technologies (programs, components, terminals) that has one purpose : make you feel on an other planet. For a few hours, you’ll be surrounded by objects or characters that doesn’t exists and it will feel like time is running differently! The viewer is no longer watching a movie facing a screen. He is literally plunged inside the movie or simulation by the help of VR glasses. Virtual reality is much more than a movie or video game viewed in a headset, it is a new audiovisual medium with its own language and forme of expression.
Last year, the EXPERIENCE festival gave the opportunity to the public to live the VR adventure, offering the trial of the glasses to discover the newest movies productions.
That's why it needs its own space! That why we need you to create a real VR cinema: in order to live an intense and unique experience everyday.
Great authors like Alejandro G. Iñárritu will present his next film 'CARNE y ARENA' at the Cannes festival using the new technic of VR. Björk is also exploring VR possibilities for several years now. This is happening, and you’ll take part of it!
In practice, EXPERIENCE CINEMA will open each day and propose the best international VR creations. Alone or in a group during a one-hour session mediated by our teams, everyone will be able to discover the most innovating contains for the same price as cinema ticket.
