CINEGLOBE @World VR Forum, Crans Montana, 6-8 May 2016

CineGlobe, with a presentation by Neal Hartman (Director and President of the Festival of films at CERN), will participate in this first forum on Virtual Reality. WVRF opens up the debate whilst seeking to address contemporary topics related to technology, culture, philosophy and education, which are affected by VR/AR.

Behind all good communication, and therefore education, lies good storytelling; this rule applies to science as well. Neal will discuss the overall approach to narrative for science, as well as two past projects and the in-development interactive VR experience Out of Body.

WVRF offers the public quality experiences, but also allows content creators to show their work and get direct feedback from the public through a competitive festival. The best project will be awarded with a prize at the end of the event, during the closing ceremony.

Difficult People – one of the projects developed during the Virtual Reality Hackathon Storytelling Science, organised last year by CineGlobe and Festival Tous Ecrans. Difficult People mixes immsersive 360° video and spacial sound to recreate the chaotic and oppressing experience those that suffer from attention deficit and hyperactivity (ADHD).

Cineglobe @EXPO JUNIORS

For the first time, CineGlobe joins the creative laboratory AddictLab for an expo dedicated entirely to children of all ages. Among dozens of other organisations, CineGlobe will display its kid-friendly films in the two Minima Cinema cabins, as well as lead workshops all three days for children and parents on how to create a pin-hole camera from an old Tetra Pak container, and then develop the pictures with Coffee and Vitamin C.

Look at the amazing results from our Tetra Pak Camera Initiative during our collaboration with Addictlab @Expo Juniors

cineglobe estival 2016

CineGlobe Estival (CineGlobe Summer, in English) will celebrate science and technology in daily life, and will target families with a varied program of fun, light-hearted, and informative events that appeal to a broad public. The festival will take place during the first week of July, on the lawn of the Globe at CERN from Wednesday 6 to Friday 8 July, and then at the Musée de l’Histoire des sciences the 9 and 10 July during the Nuit de la Science. The festival will comprise an open air cinema, the interactive Circus of Science, and film projections in the Globe. Don’t forget to save the date and join us for an exceptional summer edition.
