S. Korean Director's Animated Film Wins Best VR Experience Award in Venice

A virtual reality(VR) film directed by South Korea’s Chae Soo-eung received the award for Best VR Experience at the 75th Venice International Film Festival. The film, titled "Buddy," was the only Korean flick to be invited to the renowned festival that ended last Saturday.

The film’s production company, Redrover, said Buddy was selected out of a total of 30 VR movies which competed for the three awards in the category; Best VR, Best VR Experience and Best VR Story.
