As you may already know, Ziyi was the Jury president of the 16th FIRST Youth Film Festival in Xining this year. She attended a few events, including a screening of The Grandmaster, a press conference of the jury and of course the closing ceremony. There, she announced the best film’s winner: One and Four, directed by Jigme Trinley.
Ziyi just announced the winner or the VeeR Future Award – Best VR Story: Alex Honnold: The Soloist VR, directed by Jonathan Griffith.
“It’s been a privilege to be a part of the Cannes XR 2022 Jury. It was a unique experience to immerse myself in this new art form. Virtual reality allows us to step right into the narrative. I was able to interact with the characters, and, sometimes, I was part of the storytelling. This experience opened my eyes to the endless possibilities that this technology can offer film-making”, Ms. Zhang Ziyi said.
Good news! Ziyi will participate in the next Cannes Film Festival. The actress will be a member of the Cannes XR x VeeR Future Award jury.
18 VR works were selected out of hundreds of submissions to enter the final round of the Cannes XR x VeeR Future Award Competition to compete for a chance to win the Best VR Story and the Best Interactive Experience awards.
The jury will evaluate the projects based on their storytelling techniques, immersive and interactive designs, and innovations. The winners will be announced on 22 May at the online Cannes XR x VeeR Future Award Ceremony on Alexandria.
