This fall starts nicely. Unruly Heroes has been selected to be showcased in 2 festivals in France: "Atmospheres" and "The Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival". Both of them are cinema festivals but now video games are part of this. 🙌
➡️ The Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival is a major French platform for fantastic cinema, and one of Europe’s most comprehensive genre events. The Festival’s main focus is on new productions of international fantastic films, but also included are sections for thrillers, noir films and black comedies, and for video games and virtual-reality cinema. The Festival also hosts multiple film revivals, a sign of its firm commitment to cinema heritage.
In 2012, the Festival organisers introduced a complementary strand at the city’s digital arts centre with the focus on video games, digital creation and virtual-reality experiences. Highlights are the Indie Game Contest for independent video-game developers; installations by digital creators from our artist-in-residency programme; and a VR film corner, showcasing the latest trends in the 360° world of virtual-reality cinema.
This year, 16 video games has been selected, included our Unruly Heroes.
➡️ ATMOSPHÈRES is an international committed event. Its goal is to offer, for free, to a general audience, a vision of a sustainable future. The Festival uses all forms of creation to read and understand our world and lead to avant-gardist solutions. First and foremost, ATMOSPHÈRES is an international film festival, composed of fiction films and documentaries. But, for the first time, the Festival selected 7 international video games (Inside, Shadow of the Colossus etc), included Unruly Heroes to promote environmental awareness. And we are very proud to be part of it. 😊
For this 8th, Pierre Richard, Sébastien Folin et Michel Spiro were the godfathers of the Festival and many other leading personalities participated: Hubert Reeves, Claudie Haigneré, Shaka Ponk, Jean-Marc Barr…
