Director: Jörg Courtial
Lava bombs, towering clouds of ashes – these are some of many jaw dropping phenomena that can be marveled at in this 3D-360° film. Never before could one experience erupting volcanoes in such intensity and immersion. The impression is enhanced by not only giving the viewer the freedom to look all around him/her, the experience itself is also stereoscopic (3D).
Director: Nick Malukhin

Transmedia Project/ Media/Graphic Novel
Creator Jonathan Nolan
Zombienomicon Eisegesis is an interactive fiction project that uses the "Extend-A-Story" software. The website-based project allows anyone to add a new chapter or comment to any existing page, creating a new work in the process. This turns static writing into "choose your own adventure" interactive events and in the process also irretrievably blurs the arbitrary distinctions between reality and irreality. We are left only with the PKDian definition of reality: reality is what still exists when we cease to believe in it.One of the characters has entered into an Gnostic Universe from where there are only loops and never ends.
To facilitate inspiration a slice of the entirety of the project has been turned into a graphic novel, copies of which will be available at the festival. More artwork, animations and live action clips are scattered across the internet, awaiting discovery.
This Transmedia Project is a graphic novel / open source website project. 15 graphic novels will be available free to the public.
