This year’s Nordisk Panorama is filled to the brim with exciting stuff – loads of film to enjoy of course, but also seminars, workshops and social events. Featured content includes several sessions for participants interested in storytelling using games and VR technology. Friday, 22 September in particular is dedicated to VR. Here are some of the highlights:
