The VR Arles Festival focuses on virtual reality in immersive art, fiction and documentaries. BNP Paribas, the Rencontres d’Arles and Fisheye created the event, which drew over 35,000 visitors in 2017. Today the festival is pleased to announce a collaboration with the Palais de Tokyo for the creation of an unprecedented VR work by Julien Creuzet; a partnership with the Institut français on a virtual reality writing workshop; and an exhibition for young people featuring a program of films and educational workshops for 7-to-12 year-olds and 13-to-18 year-olds. During opening week, the couvent Saint-Césaire will host figures from the worlds of art, film and virtual reality for a lecture series probing VR’s possibilities, and a jury will award a prize to the selection’s best film.
