ABOUT US

Who are we ?

WE ARE VR Lab

The WVRF is a festival, a forum and, since 2017, a professional market dedicated completely to VR production. Its expertise in consulting, conferencing, programming and content distribution is internationally renowned. To support virtual reality, the WVRF visits markets, meets creators, startups and forms partnerships with festivals and official events around the world.

For these different activities carried out throughout the year, the WVRF adds a new space of reflection, dialogue and creation, the VR Lab – a talent incubator.

Promoting Switzerland’s creativity as well as artistic and technological skills in the field of VR is one of the battlegrounds of the WVRF, the laboratory proposes to inspire, support and encourage Switzerland’s audiovisual authors, directors and technicians.
This includes production, matchmaking, publications, meetings, exchanges, development and projects distribution.

The VR offers a new field of creativity and competence to the audiovisual and film industries, in which Switzerland has already proven its worth and which opens up real prospects for artistic and economic growth. In partnership with the (post) production company Freestudios, the laboratory proposes to inspire, support and encourage the authors, directors and technicians of the Swiss audio-visual sector, whether it concerns the development and distribution of projects, consulting, matchmaking or publications.
