This year, Geneva International Film Festival // GIFF is launching XR Coproduction Cruise. This brand-new project will take place during the Geneva Digital Market (GIFF’s professional section) from November 4-8, 2019.

This program aims to highlight the most innovative initiatives and to foster the international coproduction of immersive works by the selected participants, coproducing companies and innovation and technology start-ups that are invited for the occasion.
