360 workshop for Palestinian filmmakers to
learn the craft of VR 360 immersive
storytelling

x

Since early 2015, VR experiences have been widely used by humanitarian organisations such as the United Nations to drive positive change. They allow for a higher level of empathy by placing the viewer in the middle of the scene, making them part of the story.

 

BUT, story is always written by the winners.

Why don't let them tell their own stories?

Our workshop aims to train and empower Palestinian Filmmakers to let the world experience

what is like to be on their shoes.

Over the course of a week we will train up to 10 filmmakers to develop 2 VR pieces that will be Premiered at Film Days Palestina. Filmmakers will also gain access to VRTL online courses previous to the workshop, and all the materials used

during the workshop will remain at FilmLab Palestina.
