LucidWeb identified a solution to digitise film (VR) festivals as well as VR festivals fully by creating a virtual library that can be made accessible to everyone, directly and instantly via the browser across desktop, mobile and the most popular VR headsets, all GDPR compliant.
After a successful first collaboration with the online publication VRrOOm for Venice VR 2019, LucidWeb has further developed its offering for VR festivals with a new, 100% fully virtual, “Festival Gallery” offering.
LucidWeb is excited to introduce collaborations with two VR festivals who created a virtual festival space as an alternative, allowing the VR industry to continue pushing boundaries in VR storytelling amidst challenging times.
To gain access to the virtual festival, professionals who are part of the program or interested in it, receive an individual and free accreditation. Once authenticated, the festival attendee has access to an immersive catalogue with more than 30 experiences — including Locus Solus from Christian Lemmerz, Black Bag from Qing Shao, The Pantheon of Queer Mythology from Enrique Agudo etc.- available for streaming across three devices, mobile, desktop and headset.
The “GIFF XR Media Library” offers the accredited professionals a safe opportunity to experience the film festival from the comfort of their home despite these extraordinary times. Everyone is invited to engage and connect, so no VR professional or enthusiast is left behind with a fear of missing out.

LucidWeb has partnered with the Electric Africa VR Festival. The festival is organised by Electric South, a South African non-profit based in Cape Town that offers support, funding, production and exhibition services to a network of artists across Africa. Young and new creators can explore their worlds through immersive, interactive stories in virtual and augmented reality as well as other digital media.
The XR media library offered by Electric Africa does not require registration and is hence open to everyone, as long as the participants are based in Africa.
