THE VR (ANTI) MANIFESTO

“VR is the future of storytelling.”
“VR is the ultimate Empathy Machine.”
“VR allows us to hack into our brains”

Many sweeping statements have been uttered in 2016, but beyond the 'Enthusiasm Peak’ lies a 360 horizon of questions: What does VR really mean for reality? For documentary? For cinema? For performing arts? What are the limitations of the headset? The ethical considerations of the Empathy Machine? How do our brains process VR? What does it mean to ‘construct’ reality? In fact, the arrival of VR reactivates age-old questions, inherent to the documentary practice. Leading designers, creators and theorists converge in Montreal for an event unique in its kind: an afternoon of intense debate. Each will bring specific arguments, backed by case studies, images, and data, touching on issues of representation, neuroscience, politics, and power.

The experts will attempt to dismantle a series of common assumptions about creating in VR and to inspire new ways of thinking about the medium.

09:00 KINO VR
KINO VR

Four teams, three intensive days, one goal: to develop a prototype of a virtual reality experience. Teams are formed in advance, and consist of the following members:
A) a documentary filmmaker;
B) a coder / VR developer;
C) an expert in VR storytelling;
D) a creative wildcard.

Consistent with the Montreal-born KINO Kabaret concept, the teams are given a thematic prompt and are encouraged to develop their projects together, collaboratively and spontaneously, over the following three days. Each member will bring invaluable knowledge to the project, and mentors and experts will accompany them in their mission to create the prototype for an outside-the-box virtual reality experience.

KINO VR is non-competitive and will culminate with a public presentation of the prototypes on Sunday, November 13th. During this event, VR experts, commissioners, and creators will discuss the progress and potential of the four projects.

15H00 THE VR (ANTI) MANIFESTO
THE VR (ANTI) MANIFESTO

“VR is the future of storytelling.”
“VR is the ultimate Empathy Machine.”
“VR allows us to hack into our brains”

Many sweeping statements have been uttered in 2016, but beyond the 'Enthusiasm Peak’ lies a 360 horizon of questions: What does VR really mean for reality? For documentary? For cinema? For performing arts? What are the limitations of the headset? The ethical considerations of the Empathy Machine? How do our brains process VR? What does it mean to ‘construct’ reality? In fact, the arrival of VR reactivates age-old questions, inherent to the documentary practice. Leading designers, creators and theorists converge in Montreal for an event unique in its kind: an afternoon of intense debate. Each will bring specific arguments, backed by case studies, images, and data, touching on issues of representation, neuroscience, politics, and power.

The experts will attempt to dismantle a series of common assumptions about creating in VR and to inspire new ways of thinking about the medium.
