Le French Festival’s "Experiencing the Cinema of Tomorrow" evening on May 10th brought together 60 spectators at the Alliance Française of Kuala Lumpur to discover and enjoy the latest innovations of virtual reality and cinema.
A very diverse audience including cinema professionals, students and expatriates came to the Alliance Française to challenge their senses and learn about the new technological trends of the cinema of tomorrow, relying on virtual reality and immersion of the senses.
Several workshops were organised to experience the future of cinema :

Viewers were able to appreciate the new trends in virtual reality by watching dedicated documentaries, put in perspective by a retrospective of Gaumont films testifying to the evolution of French film over the last decades.
