One of the huge pleasures of attending film festivals is traveling the world through cinema and discovering extraordinary places and unique ways of living. Same planet, different worlds! This has never been truer, given the amazing new digital cameras that filmmakers now have at their disposal. These cameras allow for unprecedented mobility and the ability to shoot in extreme conditions, whether it’s underwater in Indonesia or in the Alps at dusk. Here are just a few upcoming VIFF films which transport us to the ends of the earth and provide huge pleasure by allowing us to experience amazing seascapes and landscapes. Seeing them on a small screen is not an option!
