Recording: Bringing Cinema into the Metaverse – Now and Next, Mar 10, 2023

The metaverse is much more than the natural evolution of the internet: it represents the dematerialization of the world, where individuals can engage real-time with unlimited environments. Audiences will expect more participation and to be immersed in story worlds. Filmmakers will also have new tools that enable them to interact with audiences in new ways - we already see this with virtual production, the recent explosion of AI, and the influence of gaming. But soon all of these technologies will converge. How do we embrace these changes, while still celebrating the cinema we know and love?
This panel will explore new initiatives being developed to promote and bring cinema to audiences on new platforms, as well as the implications for storytelling in the metaverse.
