At the VPB, projects can be found at different stages of development, with attendees in search of everything from inspirational books to gap financing. “We are getting some great feedback from the publishers because they have more meetings this year,” Diot points out.

The Venice Virtual Reality section has an outstanding international reputation and is presenting installations in an exclusive showroom on Lazzaretto Vecchio island. Among the film professionals scouting out the interactive films and VR installations this year is Loren Hammonds, programmer, Film and Immersive, at the Tribeca Film Festival. “This is an event that I don’t want to miss,” he enthuses.
