In 2018, the VR Storytelling competition is going for round two! After a very successful first edition in 2017, LICHTER is organizing for the second time an exciting VR program, once again with an international competition at its core, as well as the presentation of the finalist’s works to an audience in a theatre-like experience and a one-day accompanying event with panels, roundtable discussions and workshops.
Starting now, the call for submissions is open and will run until February 2nd 2018.
LICHTER Filmfest is an international film festival in Frankfurt, Germany, with a focus on regional and international short and feature films. With VR Storytelling LICHTER started out a complete new festival section last year, in celebration of our 10th anniversary. The main interest lies in narrative and documentary VR content, on new forms of narration in the virtual world. Thus, the competition is aimed at all those who are approaching VR with regard to the content. Fictional and non-fictional VR experiences either rendered or filmed in real-time can be submitted, as long as they are compatible with mobile HMDs (Gear VR or similar devices).
Further information about the festival, the program, submission form and terms of submission can be found on the website.
