I’m joined by Pola Weiß (Founder, VR Stories / VR Geschichten) & Kathryn Yu (Executive Editor, No Proscenium) to talk about nearly all of the 44 experiences that were a part of the Venice VR Expanded 2020 edition running from September 2 to 12. We focus mainly on projects in the main competition as well as the Biennale College Cinema VR, while briefly mentioning the Out of Competition Best of VR, which are projects that have already been released or have premiered at other festivals.
There’s somewhere between 15-17 hours worth of content where most of it is freely available throughout the course of the festival, and it took each of use nearly a week to navigate different technical difficulties, scheduling live performances, and setting aside enough time to get through the majority of the program. Between us we were able to see all of the experiences, and then unpack and digest them a bit within this critics roundtable discussion.
