VR cinemas using 360-degree visual images and interaction to experience time and space in different dimensions are emerging as a new issue in various film festivals. In addition to films, it has been expanded to many adjacent fields such as games, performances, broadcasting and sports. And various experiments and convergence have been taking place for many years. This year, Jeonju International Film Festival presents “VR Cinema: Sight in Front, Future Cinema” focusing on the cinematic immersive experience through the new media. Consisting of three programs, this special exhibition will present the exceptional Korean VR cinema and those that received attention abroad. International works include Send Me Home , a journey returning home of a young man who was unjustly imprisoned, Rone that follows the art world and exhibits of artist Rone, Kaiju Confidential, a comedy about monsters destroying the city, and 4 Feet: Blind Date, an Argentinian VR about a sexual experience of a paraplegic woman, which received great reviews from Venice Film Festival and Sundance Film Festival. Korean works include Ghost following a girl’s illusion, Horomaru , a horror experience of a haunted house, and 1 inch VR that explores the insect world from a little person’s perspective. Finally, Spheres Trilogy, one of the best VR films of last year, is the front line of VR Cinema that can stimulate all five senses by observing the birth of the universe and touching the planets. Spheres Trilogy will be showing at VR Theater 1, and VR Cinema 1 and VR Cinema 2 will be shown at VR Theater 2.
