Quebec’s first virtual reality video creation contest – Montréal 3/60 – was designed to spotlight the talented 360° experience creators of tomorrow. In September 2016, three of the some thirty teams who submitted proposals were selected to participate in a three-month residency at Valtech, during which they would create a 360° work on the theme of “Montreal of the future.”

The short film In/Future by the Mythologi team (Alejandro Figueroa, Ian Cameron, Jon Yu, Qarim Brown, and Bruno Pucella) was declared the winner. According to Pierre Friquet, jury chair and immersive filmmaker, In/Future is characterized by its profundity: “The richness of the dialogue on multiculturalism, the gestures of the speakers, and the spatial composition create a sense of intimacy and engagement in the viewer.”

The other jury members were Nancy Eperjesy (founder of Mettle), Audrey Pacart, George Fok (Creative Director at the Phi Centre), and Jean-François Tremblay (evangelist for augmented and virtual reality at Valtech).

In/Future by Mythologi – Winning team

In/Future is an immersive poetic documentary that, through conversation, explores Montreal's identity. Three different creators share what the city offers them, their relationship with it, and their vision of its future. The design of the experience–bringing together diverse points of view in a common virtual space and placing the user in an abstract but realistic space with these characters–aims to create a sense of community through social dialogue. The work speaks of common social values amidst diversity and the embracing of inclusion and change in a vision for the future.

TRIANGLES by Bucky

TRIANGLES evokes Montreal’s future through the city’s emblematic Biosphere. This timeless structure designed by Richard Buckminster Fuller first served as the American pavilion at Expo 67, a major event that celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and helped pave the way for Montreal’s emergence as an international cultural metropolis. The geodesic dome is a physical representation of the concepts Fuller developed to build a better future. His futuristic ideas from the past still resonate today in an age of international tension.
