VR Days Europe 2018

24 - 26 October, Amsterdam

Europe’s leading conference and

exhibition celebrating virtual,

augmented and mixed reality (XR)

business innovation and creativity

aims at providing attendees with

key takeaways on the topical theme: ‘What role does XR

technology currently play, and what can be expected of

mixed reality solutions in the future?’

The DeLaMar Theatre will play host to the Vision & Impact

Conference on 24 October, which will welcome

industry thought leaders to present delegates with new

ideas, technologies and solutions, building on experience

across arts, healthcare, storytelling and corporate backgrounds.

At the Kromhouthal, more than 100 exhibitors will present VR,

AR and XR technologies across two days, with a programme of

events running in tandem to the exhibition. The Church of VR

celebrates the most creative VR content, with over 30 artists’

work presented, and the XR Creators’ Lab enables teams to

work on projects during the event. A trio of market-specific

summits will feature talks, panel discussions and roundtables

focussing on enterprise, healthcare and media, and arts and


VR Days Europe is produced in collaboration with Integrated

Systems Events.

All-access tickets are available for €299 ex VAT.

Manaslu – Mountain of

the Spirit

Since 1996 Hans Kammerlander

holds the record for the fastest

ascent on the north route to the

summit of Mount Everest in 16

hours and 40 minutes, followed

by the first ski decent from the

highest mountain in the world.

Kammerlander, who experienced

his most painful moment in

1991 at the Manaslu in Nepal,

where he tragically lost two of

his best friends, returns

to his tragic destiny

mountain after 26 years.

Stephan Keck, extreme

mountaineer and adventurer,

who was present at

the avalanche disaster in

2012 when twelve people

died, accompanied his

friend to the Manaslu.

The movie tries to reflect the image of a man who has dedicated

his life to the mountains, suffered great losses, experienced

tragedies and great triumphs.

The film also tells for example the story about the South Tyrolean

„light catcher“ Kurt Moser, who used an old technique,

which was at the origin of photography, to capture pictures

on silver-plated glass plates. Each image is a unique copy of

humans or landscapes.

Theatrical release: December 14, 2018.

Women film women – a weapon

of empowerment

October 29 and 30, 2 to 6 pm, ACFNY

This workshop will examine film as one of the most powerful

tools of female self-determination. This hands-on

two-day workshop is geared primarily towards those closely

involved in the film industry, especially experienced and

aspiring filmmakers, and to those interested in documentation

such as journalism students.

The Austrian documentary filmmaker Alexandra Schneider

will present documentaries directed by women that focus

on women and suppressed minorities – a focal point of her

work –, all the while paying close attention to sensitive topics

that merit consideration

when using documentaries as

a voice for those whose cries

remain unheard. In doing so,

she will draw on her experiences

filming four women in

Egypt, where she was assisted

by an exclusively female crew.

Schneider will also address

how to avoid further stigmatization

and stereotyping, as

Alexandra Schneider

well as how to cope with a filmmaker’s responsibility towards

the film’s protagonists after finishing shooting. Moreover, workshop

participants will investigate whether one can speak of a

genuinely „female“ language of film by scanning a wide range

of approaches in cinema, as evidenced by both Austrian and US

documentaries made by female filmmakers.

Alexandra Schneider was born in the late seventies in Switzerland

and grew up in southern Germany, the United States, Denmark,

and eventually in Austria. She completed a master’s degree in

Comparative Social Studies in Maastricht, Netherlands, later working

as a social worker and gender mainstreaming expert in Vienna

for five years. In 2006 Schneider started studying film at the

State Academia of Film in Vienna under the esteemed filmmakers

and professors Michael Haneke and Peter Patzak. Since 2008

Schneider has been filming and working in the film business

worldwide. She is the director of award-winning documentaries

such as Young, Female, Egyptian or Tante Baum as well as editor

of various awarded documentaries such as Fahrtwind, Der Zornige

Buddha, Project Superwoman or Unser Kampf.

Film screening & panel discussion

October 29, 07:30 PM

The documentary Private Revolutions - Young, Female, Egyptian

by Alexandra Schneider gives insight into the lives of four Egyptian

women in their struggle for a better society. Regardless of

their various social backgrounds, they are sovereign, eloquent

and determined.

Street activist Sharbat was kicked out with her kids by her own

husband because of her political engagement. Fatema is an

active Muslim Sister and mother of three boys. Amani struggles

on a daily basis to keep her own radio station and a publishing

company running to fight for more women rights. And May, a

member of the Nubian minority, starts a development project in

the south of Egypt, a region known for its conservativism.

The film screening will be followed by a Q&A with Alexandra

Schneider where she will discuss what we can learn from protagonists

for whom an autocratic regime and the danger of

being silenced present a daily threat. How do those committed

to a more democratic and just society persevere in light of current

developments in Egypt? In addition, Schneider will share

thoughts on her experience working with a wholly female crew

in an Arab country, and, on a more general note, being a female

documentary filmmaker.
