2017 the LICHTER Filmfest launches a brand new section in its program presenting works from the field of fictional and non-fictional “Virtual Reality Storytelling”. This will include two- or three-dimensional 360-degree films either rendered or filmed in real-time and which are playable on a GearVR or similar device.
The call for entries for the attended competition is now closed. An international jury will select the five finalists, whose works will be presented to the audience during the 10th LICHTER Filmfest from the 29th March to the 03rd April 2017, soon. The very first LICHTER-Virtual Reality competition is endowed with a 1.000 Euro prize. The winner will be announced at the great opening of the LICHTER VR-Section 2017.
