Digital November 2022: Circle

Digital November is an international event of the Institut Francais, and it has been introducing high-quality XR content to the public through collaboration with the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival(BIFAN) since 2020.


DIGITAL NOVEMBER, The 3rd , is presented by Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival and French Embassy. Under the theme of CIRCLE, DIGITAL NOVEMBER will conjure up and showcase  a cluster of reality and virtual reality, art and technology and human in favorable circumstance to embrace experiences that have been unable to be resolved and quietly dispersed in VR headsets
The cinema, which is screened together, leaves the theater and faces the audience in an open space. It's a 21st century simulcast, and the beginning and the end are ambiguous. AI would offer us some of artistic and unorthodox images, and the waves of music and performance will open up the conversation.
As you may have experienced in this July, “stay strange” is okay. Ideal circulation, such a natural phenomenon in a way that would develop an experience into a conversation also the conversation into a gathering and the gathering into a party and the party into an experience, will enhance our sense of art appreciation.
Now we invite you to DIGITAL NOVEMBER2022: CIRCLE’s STRANGE ORBIT and want you to have some creative experiences that come from the moment of realization inspiring us to think about a way of coexistence and the better future.

Why Circle?

Immersive content utilizing VR HMD has been conceived as suitible for personal experience rather than for collective mass experience such as cinema due to its specific hardware requirements. With this year's Digital November, we would like to present a "Circle" which embraces such scattered peronal experience as a metaphor and a main theme of the event.


DIGITAL NOVEMBER 2022: CIRCLE will support a new way of cinema experience with silent disco atmosphere. 3 channels for a double feature screening and music sounds will be on each set of on-site wireless silent disco headphones. Enable to transmit separate frequencies of sounds on on-site wireless silent disco headphones we offer for Screenings and Music at your seat as you want. Cinema and Music, Silent Disco will lead you to a new way of cinema experience.
