Am diesjährigen Gässli Film Festival gibt es wieder die einmalige Gelegenheit, mit innovativem Storytelling und neuen Filmtechnologien in Kontakt zu kommen. Besucher können während dem Event exklusiv die HoloLens von Microsoft ausprobieren und wie im vergangenen Jahr neue Geschichten in der Virtual Reality erleben.

Die Technologie, wo man mittels einer Brille in 360º- Welten eintauchen kann, schlägt weiter grosse Wellen. Sei dies im Bereich Gaming oder mit interaktiven Filmen bis hin zu narrativen Erzählungen – an unserer interaktiven Ausstellung kannst du die neusten immersiven Werke von verschiedenen Künstlern erleben.

Mit von der Partie sind auch die Schweizer Christophe Merkle (Inspector Crazy) und Dirk Koy (Escape Route). Wir freuen uns auch auf den bereits 3. Besuch von Sheritalyn Solis am Gässli Film Festival freuen, die bei Paramount Pictures den Bereich „Storytelling, Virtual Reality & Emerging Creative Platforms“ unter sich hat.

Die Innovative Storytelling Ausstellung findet täglich von 12 - 22 Uhr im Loge Clique-Keller statt. Ein Workshop, welcher die «Augmented Reality» (AR) und die «Virtual Reality» (VR) unter die Lupe nimmt, findet unter der Leitung verschiedener Experten am Samstagnachmittag statt.

Als virtuelle Realität, kurz VR, wird die Darstellung und gleichzeitige Wahrnehmung der Wirklichkeit und ihrer physikalischen Eigenschaften in einer in Echtzeit computergenerierten, interaktiven virtuellen Umgebung bezeichnet. Diese neue Technolige öffnet Türen in der Film- und Game-Welt. Da sich die VR mit jedem Tag weiterentwickelt und sich ausbreitet, wollen wir die VR am diesjährigen Gässli Film Festival vorstellen. Das Publikum soll die Virtual Reality selbst erleben, testen und eine neue, andere Welt erleben.

This uprising became increasingly chaotic and bloody, culminating after six days with the rebel leaders surrendering. Hundreds of British Soldiers, civilians and rebels died. The VR experience makes use of McNeive’s eyewit- ness account a recording of which lay undiscovered for over 30 years . Through a remarkable, and very personal insight into this a key moment in European history, Easter Rising: Voice of a Rebel presents an artistic journey into the memory of an ordinary man who was swept up into an extraordinary event.
