U.K. Action Thriller ‘The Ascent’ Turns to Vr for Lockdown Premiere
U.K producer Mosley Studios and producer-financier Goldfinch are turning to virtual reality for the launch of their latest feature, action thriller “The Ascent.”

Thought to be the first film premiere inside virtual reality, “The Ascent” will bow June 12 at 7 p.m. (BST) via AltspaceVR, and will be available to those with an Oculus headset, or similar. The event will be called “The Vr Film Festival.”

For those without AltspaceVR or access to a visor, the film will also premiere on Goldfinch’s recently launched VOD service Birdbox.Film at the same time.

The AltspaceVR premiere will also include a Q&a with director Tom Paton and cinematographer George Burt.

Burt said: “The Vr Film Festival was launched to give feature films a virtual platform to premiere in a copyright-safe environment. Due to Covid-19 we’ve been looking into tech and found AltspaceVR which can host the event with up to 100 people attending.
