The LICHTER VR Storytelling competition goes in the second edition
In 2018 the VR Storytelling competition is going for round two! After a very successful first edition in 2017, we’re 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, lectures and workshops.
Starting now, the call for submissions is open and will run until February 2nd 2018.
Our 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).
An independent jury will determine the five finalists from all the entries. The works will be presented to the audience in public screenings during the festival and the winner will be honoured in a special award presentation.
