360 Film Festival
360 FILM FESTIVAL – 2019 EDITION
As the content-focused event of SATIS-Screen4All, the 360 Film Festival promotes professional networking and content visibility in virtual reality, augmented reality, and large formats (3D mapping, dome projection, 360° screen, etc.). An exceptional showcase where visitors can learn about immersive media and their potential for creation and storytelling!
The 360 Film Festival’s fourth edition continues to innovate, giving out new awards and highlighting not only authors but also technique, which other festivals often overlook.
This new strategy is in line with SATIS’ goal to recognize creation and innovation!
Experiences in VR, AR, and large formats that tell engaging stories with a high level of technical performance were presented and rewarded at last year’s SATIS-Screen4ALL, at the Docks de Paris on November 5 and 6, 2018.
Content in the 2019 official selection will run for one of the new awards:
- 3 GRAND PRIZES: VR / AR / LARGE FORMAT
- BEST SCREENPLAY
- BEST INTERACTIVITY OR INTEGRATION
- BEST IMMERSION
- BEST PICTURE
- BEST SOUND
- BEST ANIMATION

ArtOfCorner – VR/Interactive – 2018 – France
The jury was impressed by the total immersion in the artist’s studio, the incredible quality of the 3D scans, and the viewer’s freedom of movement around the studio.
Since the 360 Film Festival, ArtOfCorner has received significant coverage. In an article published by Intel in January 2019, ArtOfCorner founder and CEO Frédéric Purgal, a specialist of volumetric and photogrammetric VR, reveals the secrets of Bourdelle’s pilot version. From filming to screening, the article presents all the steps involved in the project, as well as its potential for wider applications in terms of techniques and markets.

Dans la peau de Thomas Pesquet - Partie 2
by Pierre-Emmanuelle Le Goff and Jürgen Hansen
La Vingt-Cinquième Heure – VR – 17’ – 2018 – France
The jury was struck by the experience’s technical prowess, immersion, storytelling, and image quality.
After its premiere at the 360 Film Festival, Dans la peau de Thomas Pesquet has gone on to win the 2019 SMA Award for best immersive creation; it is now screened at MK2 VR and in the Eydolon network of VR spaces in Lyon and Bordeaux, and will soon be screened in China.
Production studio La Vingt-Cinquième Heure stays the course with VR, including with a Franco-Belgian film entitled Dans la peau d’un Shégué - directed by Marc-Henri Wajnberg, currently in post-production - that raises awareness of the issue of witch-children in the streets of Kinshasa by letting viewers see through their eyes. Other projects are also in production, including on topics such as space and the environment.
La Vingt-Cinquième Heure is committed to virtual reality and, with what we’ve seen so far, we’re looking forward to seeing their upcoming programs!
