Cannes Film Festival celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2017! Cannes Film Festival’s innovation hub, Next, focuses on 360/VR films this year and features a large lineup (over 100 works!) of incredible films in this emerging storytelling medium. VR films can be viewed in booths, in theaters, or at participants’ leisure through the VR film library. We’re thrilled to see such an extensive lineup of films from all around the world.
We’ve curated a selection of five cutting-edge 360 films from Cannes Next 2017:
