DNIPRO, OCTOBER, 8th, 9th, 10th, 2021
about festival |
3D cinema did not arise in the 2000s or 1990s...The first anaglyph film was shown in 1915.
And the first predecessor of virtual reality was a stereoscope, patented by Charles Winston in 1837.
Honoring the centuries-old traditions of cinema, KINNOVATION unveils and demonstrates the most interesting modern film forms to the viewers.
The festival is held within the program "Cultural Capital" with the support of the Department of Humanitarian Policy of the Dnipro City Council.
| nominations
an international team of selectors reviews and selects the most interesting films from thousands of submitted works
In the VR-zone of the festival, located in the lounge part of the "Planet Cinema" theater, the most active attendees will be able to watch the best 360* degree films from all over the world.
This is a virtual adventure that will be remembered for a long time.
James Cameron discovered the era of stereo cinema. We will introduce you to short films created using three-dimensional image technology.
Mobile Cinema
In the age of digitalization, anyone can become famous by shooting a movie on a smartphone.
Before you make your first movie with the iPhone 10, look at all the unusual and wonderful movies you can create with the help of a mobile friend.
Special effects have become an integral part of cinema. Action, science fiction, and even biographical films. Make sure and see for yourself by visiting the festival that the short film industry also has its own “Spielbergs”.
Film Industry Startups
Without a camera, there would be no film. But at one time, both the camera and the movie projector were just startups. We hope that new Lumières and Pate will be born at our festival.
| awards
the winners will get the award and a super modern world-known action camera
