POSITIVE OUTCOME FOR THE 3RD
NIFFF ON TOUR@CERN: FUTURE STORYWORLDS
On November 29th and 30th, the Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival (NIFFF) and the Cineglobe Film Festival at CERN collaborated with the Pro Helvetia Swiss Arts Council on a unique workshop that aimed at strengthening the concepts and development phases of 9 immersive projects from Switzerland (video game, augmented/mixed/virtual reality) in terms of storytelling, technology and scientific accuracy. After two intense days of conferences and discussions between participants and experts, the project BAT VISION from Eliane Zihlmann & Raffaele Grosjean, industrial design students at the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste (Toni Areal, Zürich) was granted a CHF 3,000 supporting prize. A more accomplished version of the project will premiere at the NIFFF’s 20th edition, between 3-11 July, 2020.
Elliot Vaucher & Karian Før were also rewarded for their project UNMEM PLASMA by our partner STORYTEK (Estonian accelerator and pole for innovation). They will be able to benefit from proper mentoring in the year to come.
Immersive Narrative Workshop
29 & 30 November, CERN
The Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival (NIFFF) is happy to announce the results from the ‘NIFFF ON TOUR@CERN: Future Storyworlds’ call to projects. This unique workshop is designed in close collaboration with CineGlobe Film Festival at CERN, the Pro Helvetia Swiss Arts Council, and STORYTEK, Estonian accelerator and innovation centre.
Future Storyworlds gives participants a chance to strengthen the concepts that support their creations, with the help of scientists and major players from the storytelling and digital industries. In 2019, this exclusive workshop held at the CERN aims at supporting futuristic tales of technological and scientific evolution, conceived for immersive media (video games, augmented/virtual/mixed reality).
The selected projects are:
Farid Ben Amor, Principal, Sababa Media Sàrl, Geneva
Eliane Zihlmann, Student in Industrial Design, ZHdK, Zürich
Raffaele Grosjean, Student in Industrial Design, ZHdK, Zürich
Arnaud Gattlen, Writer, Lausanne
Ewa Miendlarzewska, Writer, Carouge
Ian Grünig, Digital Artist, Zürich
Elliot Vaucher, Author, Lausanne
Karian Før, Digital Product Designer, Lausanne
Laurence Suhner, Writer, Geneva
In the end, a CHF 3,000 prize will be awarded to the most promising Swiss project. The experts can also grant a Swiss or international project a chance to partake in an intensive on-site development programme from STORYTEK.
