Cannes XR, the Marché du Film’s program, has announced its third-year partnership with leading global VR content platform VeeR.
The 2022 Cannes XR x VeeR Future Award Competition will feature a curated selection of this year’s most innovative and captivating VR works and celebrate each creator’s achievements in cinematic VR. This year the organisers welcome all applicants worldwide and projects from both 3DoF and 6DoF domains, including but not limited to cinematic VR experiences, immersive art, VR theatre performances and narrative VR games.
The deadline to submit the work is 3 March. The 2022 shortlisted VR works will be shown during Cannes XR’s worldwide virtual screening and showcased offline in China to bring VR projects and their creators in front of more media, potential distributors and investors.
Cannes XR will present two winners with the 2022 VeeR Future Award in two categories: Best VR Story and Best VR Interactive Experience. Each winner will also be awarded 1000 USD and a Premium Plus Package.
While submissions are free of charge, the form should be filled out in English as completely as possible. The online form is the only accepted way to submit the project. There is no time limit to complete the form. Answers are auto-saved (using the same device and browser, excluding private windows).
