Ursprünglicher Artikel vom 4. April 2020:

Das Tribeca Film Festival wurde wegen der Corona-Krise auf den Herbst verschoben. Im April übertragen die Veranstalter eine Auswahl ihres immersiven Festivalprogramms in Oculus TV.

Das Ersatzformat wurde in Kooperation mit Oculus auf die Beine gestellt und hört auf den Namen Cinema360. Es umfasst 15 VR-Filme, die sich in vier 30- bis 40-minütige Programme teilen (siehe vollständige Liste unten).

Die Filme werden vom 17. bis 25. April in Oculus TV zu sehen sein. Bei zehn der Filme handelt es sich um Weltpremieren.

Die Veranstalter haben eine Liste aller VR-Installationen erstellt, die Teil des Festivalprogramms sind, aber nicht via Oculus TV ausgestrahlt werden können. Die VR-Installationen sollen im Herbst auf dem Fiestival zu sehen sein.

VR-Film “The Key” erscheint für Oculus-Brillen

Oculus kündigt aus gegebenem Anlass die baldige Veröffentlichung des preisgekrönten VR-Films “The Key” an. Er wird als eigenständige App für Oculus Quest und Oculus Rift (S) erscheinen.

Der VR-Film entstand aus einer Kooperation mit der Non-Profit-Organisation Friends of Refugees und Oculus’ VR for Good und feierte 2019 auf dem Tribeca Filmfestival Premiere, wo er den Tribeca Storyscapes Award gewann.

Später wurde der VR-Film mit einem Goldenen Löwen der Internationalen Filmfestspiele von Venedig in der Kategorie Virtual Reality ausgezeichnet. Unsere Gastautorin Pola Weiß hat eine ausführliche Kritik zu The Key geschrieben.

Tribeca is about resiliency, and we fiercely believe in the power of artists to bring us together. We were founded after the devastation of 9/11 and it’s in our DNA to bring communities together through the arts.”
