Milano, 4 April 2023. The 9th International Documentary Festival Visioni dal Mondo, in Milan from 14 to 17 September 2023, confirms as part of its programme the second edition of Visioni VR, the section dedicated to virtual reality.
A collaboration between the International Documentary Festival Visions from the World and the Leonardo da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology, which aims to promote the creativity and vitality, also ‘virtual’, of the documentary sector and to offer museum audiences increasingly immersive experiences able to take cultural storytelling to a higher level.
After the success of the first edition, attended by the public, the press and content creators, the 2023 edition of Visioni dal Mondo will once again host Visioni VR at the Leonardo da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology, the most important technical-scientific museum in Italy and one of the most important in Europe and the world.
Visioni VR through the contest aims to select Italian and international documentary films in linear virtual reality and interactive experiences, focusing on those that pay particular attention to contemporary issues, such as environmental protection, globalisation, climate change, science and technological innovation.
The Visioni VR Contest will be added to the main sections of the festival: Italian Contest with two categories, feature films and first works, addressed to Italian filmmakers; International Contest, dedicated to foreign feature documentaries; Visioni Incontra Contest, dedicated to documentary projects still in the work in progress or in final development phase. The calls for entries open to films, documentary projects and works in virtual reality are available on the Festival website www.visionidalmondo.it. The deadline for submission is 31 May 2023.
For this edition of Visioni VR, too, it will be the public attending the experience that will award the ‘Visioni VR 2023’ prize to the winning work. Two special mentions will also be awarded, as last year, by the quality jury of press and influencers.
An immersive experience that allows the viewer to experience “virtual” cinema in the first person, listening with their eyes to learn and enhance their experience.
