October 30, 2017
MUTEK continues its virtual reality activities in November in Montréal as a partner of the 2nd edition of Sodec's Atelier Grand Nord RV and the 1st edition of HUB Montreal.
Atelier Grand Nord Réalité Virtuelle
November 8 to 11
Back for a second edition, Sodec's Atelier Grand Nord Réalité Virtuelle (AGNRV) will bring together the teams of 10 narrative virtual reality projects in development as well as renowned experts. The workshop offers a privileged opportunity for these participants to stimulate reflection on their respective works, to encourage the flow of ideas and points of view, while creating links with the objective of encouraging the work of peer production or future co-productions.
Stretching over four days at the Phi Center, the workshop offers discussions and one-on-one meetings devoted mainly to the creation and production stages as well as a Think Tank on virtual reality distribution. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet with interactive / VR decision-makers on November 14 as part of the Doc Circuit Montreal One-on-One pitches.

The VR Day
The result of a collaboration between HUB Montreal, Doc Circuit Montreal (DCM) and MUTEK, the VR Day is a new initiative that aims to contribute to the buzz of Montreal's creative industries. Together, we have designed an inspiring program that brings together actors from different audiovisual areas around a topic of current and common interest: creation in virtual reality. Bringing together Montréal and international pioneers of the field, the VR Day welcomes creators from various francophone countries thanks to a partnership with Sodec and its Atelier Grand Nord RV.
By combining our expertise, bringing our audiences together and stimulating the professional network together, we create an international meeting that values Montréal's creative potential and its talents.
