MFF Praha - Febiofest
This year’s Prague IFF – Febiofest will bring a brand new programme section: VR Cinema.
Virtual reality films will be shown during the festival weekend, 17-19 September 2021, in the special VR screening room at the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art. Each of the three thematic blocs – Art, Anima and Docu – consists of three short films. Visitors need only one ticket for each bloc, though!
ART VR: This selection of art films will take you into fantastical worlds – be it among “human” spiders, on board of a hypnotic spaceship, or into the depths of Kubrick’s masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey.
