Apart from Moscow, during the days of the Venice International Film Festival, VR locations were deployed in 13 more cultural capitals of the world, including Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Montreal, and other cities.
The exhibition in Moscow was attended by over 2,000 spectators, who had the opportunity to get acquainted with 37 immersive works from 21 countries of the world.
