The Kaohsiung Film Festival today (15 September) announced the world premiere program of "Kaohsiung VR FILM LAB Originals" supported by the "Kaohsiung VR FILM LAB" program. Fish WANG, who won the Golden Horse Best Animation Short Film Award, makes his VR debut with "Red Tail Ep.1”to create a dream-like fantasy world in the form of stop motion animation. HUANG Dan-Chi and French director Morgan OMMER co-write and co-direct "Madame Pirate: Becoming A Legend". This work recreates the legendary story of CHING I Sao , the notorious 19th-century female pirate in Asia. The team of "FabLab Dynamic" starts from the late legendary dancer XIAO He-Wen and tries to recreate the stunning dance in the virtual world through AI computing and motion capture photography technology in "Project ZERO｜Episode One”. New media artist HUANG Hsin-Chien, who took the Venice Film Festival, the Cannes Film Festival-associated Marché du Film and the South by Southwest Film Festival by storm, presents his latest VR work "Samsara" for its Asian premiere. The 2021 Kaohsiung Film Festival launches the "XR Dreamland" (the section of immersive images) with a VR Headset Rental Package. The audience will not have to visit Kaohsiung. Instead, they can log in at home with one click and experience the charm of virtual reality images.
The KFF VR Competition is entering its fourth year, and many of the finalists have been recognized by iconic international film festivals, such as Cannes Film Festival and Venice Film Festival and more. The forms of these works include VR360, interactive, VR concerts, and “VR Live Performance” which allow multiple people to connect and participate in the performance together in different locations.
