VR Island

Lazzaretto Vecchio
30100 Lido di Venezia

Lazzaretto Vecchio island, where Venice VR, the complete official Virtual Reality selection (Competition, Biennale College Cinema - VR and Best Of sections) is exhibited as part of the 76th Venice International Film Festival, is located just a short distance from the lagoon side of the Lido, in front of Riva di Corinto and across from the Hotel Excelsior.

Since the first edition in 2017, which was the first-ever competition for Virtual Reality films in an international film festival, the competition titled Venice Virtual Reality returns to the Venice International Film Festival as what has already come to be known as the “VR Island”.

For the 1st year the Spazio Incontri (the conference space of the VPB) will be on the VR Island from the 29th of August till the 1st of September included.   

From the 29th of August till the 3rd of September the VR Island will be opened only to Industry delegates (GOLD, TRADE and PROFESSIONAL).

Transportation will be organized from the Festival area (near the Excelsior) with shuttles by bus and boat to Lazzaretto Vecchio island and back.

Please be aware that from the 2nd to the 7th of September the Spazio Incontri will be moved at the third floor of the Hotel Excelsior, where the access will also be allowed to the public without an accreditation.
