Production of artificial worlds: How are 360-degrees and VR films made?
Presentations, round table, VR experience

Three experts will share their first-hand experiences on producing 360-degrees and VR films. How (in)accessible are the technologies of virtual reality today? What are the specifics of this mode of storytelling? How high are the barriers that need to be crossed on the way to the production’s finishing line? What are the current possibilities of festival and other distribution? Finally, what sort of development is to be expected in the near future in this area of creativity?

Slovenian Cinematheque, Miklošičeva cesta 28

Film criticism and curating: Why is the length of films important and why it shouldn’t be?
Lecture, round table

Michael Pattison, a British film critic and curator, as well as an old friend of the domestic film festivals, will present his reflections on the (ir)relevance of film lengths in criticism and curating. In what way does each historical moment determine the length of a film and how did the length become an expression of financial and cultural value of film in capitalism? How does the length consequently determine the frames of cinematographic distribution and accessibility, including the possibilities of critique? And in what way is it possible to resist the unfair ban of the short film to the edge of the film industry?
The lecture will be followed by a discussion between domestic and foreign guests involved in film criticism and curating film programmes.
