First International VR Festival to Be Held in Moscow

From November 26 to December 12, 2021, the First Moscow International VR Festival will be held, which will bring together the best virtual reality content from around the world. During the event, 24 artistic VR projects from 12 countries will be presented to the public.  

The founder of the interactive studio Less Media Group, which was one of the organizers of the festival, Alina Mikhaleva, is sure that “we are entering a new era.” According to her, the festival should give an additional impetus to the development of the industry in Russia and show what this technology is capable of.

“Metaverse, omniverse – each company calls it in its own way, but in fact, all these terms mean one thing: we are leaving the ‘flat’ world, the era of spatial content begins. New platforms need to be created for new types of content – that’s why we are launching the Moscow International VR Festival,” she explains.

The entire festival programme is divided into seven thematic tracks. In particular, “Consciousness” includes projects exploring the boundaries of consciousness, “Height” includes works about the boundless cosmos and the conquest of Mount Everest, the “Storytelling” section presents stories about love, loneliness, and courage. In turn, “Interactive” includes two animated games, the track “Art” is dedicated to the history of feature films, Notre Dame Cathedral, as well as the artistic works of Becklin and Da Vinci. “Doc” includes documentary projects and films in 360° format. Finally, the track “Masterpieces” will be dedicated to VR incarnations of paintings by Monet, Munch, and Brueghel.

More information about the programme and the most interesting screenings can be found on the festival’s official website. It is also mentioned that at all Moscow sites, the display of works will be accompanied by specialists who will help each visitor to use VR equipment.
