The Institut français and the event

The Institut français assists French players in virtual reality in developing internationally, by reinforcing their visibility thanks to a bilingual showcase-website and by promoting the distribution of their works through the French cultural network abroad (La Sélection VR) and international markets (French Immersion programme, VR Immersive Experiences catalogue). It fosters international coproductions and cooperations and puts French and foreign professionals in contact with each other (in particular with the framework of the Focus). Lastly it supports designers within the framework of the residency programmes (VR writing residency, Villa Kujoyama, Villa San Francisco, etc.)
