The Venice Film Festival is the oldest film celebration in the world, founded in 1932. The 74th Venice Film Festival is due to be held from 4th August-9th September 2017, and in line with several other film festivals, the festival is introducing a line-up for virtual reality (VR) experiences. However, there is one twist, the VR Festival is getting its own island.

Venice VR will feature a dedicated VR theatre with 50 revolving leather seats, which is located in a huge hanger-like building that dates back to the 16th Century. VR experiences on offer at the theatre include The Deserted by Taiwanese direction Tsai Ming-Liang, Proxima by Mathieu Pradat, Gomorrah VR – We Own the Streets by Enrico Rosati and the The Argos File by Josema Roig.

There will also be several VR installations available to experience, such as The Last Goodbye, a story about a holocaust survivor visiting the camp where his family died; Draw Me Close, a VR piece about dealing with a dying loved one and Alice, a blend of live-action and animation based on Alice in Wonderland.
