The Romanian VR Days @ Cannes IFF
Romania’s first VR exploratory steps will be unveiled at this year’s edition of the Cannes Film Market.
Aiming to showcase and to promote Romanian VR works and artists at the 70th Cannes International Film Festival, the pilot initiative highlights, debates and encourages the first pioneering steps in the VR industry: “Romania has much more to offer than highly qualitative cinema: it has to offer compelling virtual reality concepts and contents, ground-breaking technologies and pioneering storytelling architectures. We aim to make all the necessary efforts to use technology constructively. As Buckminster Fuller used to say - “we are called to be architects of the future, not its victims.” This is mainly a conceived as pilot playground for Eastern-European transdisciplinary visionaries. We are honored to have the chance to create and expose Romanian VR works in one of the most inspiring innovation hubs worldwide.” - Ioana Mischie, CINETic programs coordinator and founder of the event.The program includes more than six independent Romanian VR works, reuniting diversified genres, approaches and techniques: computer-generated worlds (Quantum directed by Vlad Lomnasan, The Jilava Massacre directed by Alexandru Berceanu, Mr. Freckles directed by Andrei Brovcenco), fiction (Escape directed by Millo Simulov), documentary (The Turda Salt Mine 360 by Creative VR) and educational works (Envisage the Future directed by Lewis Smithingham).
Apart of the finalized projects included in the showcase, there will be as well a digital booklet displaying Romanian VR projects-in-development curated by STORYSCAPES, available at request for interested co-producers, partners or reviewers. The international partners will be able to further appoint one-to-one meetings with the present Romanian VR creators and with the CINETic delegates. The 70th International Cannes Film Festival takes place from May the 17th to May the 27th, 2017. This edition seems to host a pioneering year for the VR field. Cannes IFF has selected for the first time in history a virtual reality project in the competition - created by the Oscar awarded Alejandro González Iñárritu and Emmanuel Lubezki “CARNE y ARENA”. In parallel, the NEXT Pavilion will display carefully curated global VR contents for the second year in a row. In this global context, Romania aims to synchronise its first pioneering steps in dialogue with the international VR paths.
The Romanian VR Days is a pilot event created under the patronage of UNATC-CINETic. The pilot edition is initiated by Ioana Mischie, CINETic programs coordinator, cinematic storyteller and PhD student researching unconventional audio-visual grammars. The program is technically facilitated by Marius Hodea, CINETic VR research assistant and computer-generated VR practitioner. The visual image design of the event is signed by Matei Branea, UNATC Vice-Rector and animator. The initiative took shape with the contribution of external partners and Romanian entities such as Storyscapes, the Romanian NGO focussing transmedia storyworlds, interactive narratives and unconventional worldbuilding grammars (VR) or Augmented Space Agency - a Romanian start-up focussed on AR.
Affiliated to The National University of Theatre and Film (UNATC), CINETic is a recently created research centre, focussing mainly on the interaction between neuroscience and unconventional audio-visual grammars (including VR/AR/MR grammars). The centre values three main paths: the research, the creative and the educational layers. For more information, you may follow CINETic here: FB | WEB | BLOG | VIMEO
