Venice International Film Festival announced the lineup of Virtual Reality works selected for the upcoming 78th edition, in the section titled Venice VR Expanded. Following the success of the 2020 edition, the Venice VR Expanded section will again be held online from September 1 – 19, 2021.

From September 1 – 11, for the entire duration of the Venice Film Festival, the Venice VR Expanded Program will be available on site at the VR Gallery in the Palazzo del Casinò (Lido di Venezia), Sala Amici, upon reservation.

The Venice VR virtual world, designed by VRrOOm within VRChat, will be the Venice VR Expanded hub – a fantastical virtual version of Venice and of our usual in-real-life VR Island Lazzaretto Vecchio, available to anyone with a VRChat account.

Venice VR Expanded will feature a brand new section, the Venice VRChat Worlds Gallery, with a selection of 35 virtual worlds, celebrating the creativity of creators using VRChat as a platform to build their own fantasy worlds. Additionally, 5 special events, including live performances, will take place in 5 different VRChat virtual venues.
