“We are thrilled to renew our partnership with VeeR, who has been a strong and long-time partner of the Marché du Film and Cannes XR. Through this collaboration, we will create a prestigious XR artwork selection that will be accessible through a virtual exhibition and LBE (location-based entertainment) in China,” says Guillaume Esmiol, Co-Executive Director of the Marché du Film – Festival de Cannes.
“We are honored to continue our collaboration with Cannes XR for a third year. Since the selection expanded from 3DoF to 6DoF content last year, it’s exciting to see the emergence of interactive storytelling and how cinematic VR and VR gaming are merging. What’s amazing about VR is to see more and more creators coming together from diverse and creative areas – film, animation, music, art, gaming, etc. We believe that VR is a new art form that takes the essence from all other art forms. It’s all about imagination without boundaries. In 2022, together with Cannes XR, we’ll continue supporting and encouraging creators who want to explore immersive storytelling and push for greater diversity in VR creation. We sincerely look forward to seeing more talents from multiple fields expressing themselves and unleashing their creativity in VR,” says Jingshu Chen, Co-Founder of VeeR.
