Calling all VR Filmmakers

ADL FILM FEST & AFTRS LAUNCH INAUGURAL INTERNATIONAL VIRTUAL REALITY AWARD

The Adelaide Film Festival (ADL Film Fest) and the Australian Film, Television & Radio School (AFTRS) have launched an international Virtual Reality Award that will debut at the 2017 ADL Film Fest in October. Submissions close 21 June.

The AFTRS ADL Film Fest International VR Award selection will screen alongside the festival’s International Feature Award and Flinders University Feature Documentary Award. The new competition further adds to the festival’s reputation as a leader in screen culture, having been the first Australian festival to introduce an international competition, and the first to invest directly in film production with the ADL Film Fest Fund.

This year’s VR program will be a true celebration of screen innovation and will be showcased alongside ADL Film Fest’s new sister event Hybrid World Adelaide, an interactive tech based event for the digitally curious and the screen obsessed.
