XR Film Festivals Deadlines 2022

360 films, Interactive VR, Narrative VR, Cinematic VR, AR, VR Storytelling — all those genres have become a big part of the film industry landscape with more and more events taking XR seriously.

This article appears for the 6th time: The first edition came out in 2017, and then every year: 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021!

This year is no different, we have figured out how to make a festival about virtual reality in virtual reality (as we do it at goEast f.e.), how to create a network of events during a bigger event (Venice Expanded and XR3), etc.

The deal is simple: Google Spreadsheet with a list of festivals, their deadlines, dates, fees, websites. Red — deadline and event passed, Yellow — Deadline passed, Event is coming, Green — You can submit.

If you are a festival or know one which is not listed – drop a comment or write to vrfilmfest@gmail.com
The author of this listing is Georgy Molodtsov, curator of the goEast Open Frame Lab, creative producer of the Russian VR Seasons Initiative, and author of the “Under the pillow XR” project. So just you know, I’m both on the festival and content creation side, so use this spreadsheet the same way as you. Thanks to Yulia Berdnikova and Delegator24 for helping with this year's list!

P.S. Also, go to www.xrmust.com, they have comprehensive information about all the events and participants/winners of the previous years!
