Overview of the regulations


Eligibility

To be eligible to participate to The Booster, the candidate Producer must be at least one of the following:

  1. An experienced S-3D/XR producer (for any of the types of contents listed in Article 4).
  2. An experienced 2D producer who would like to make the often-difficult transition to S-3D / XR for some of his projects.
  3. A person with a limited experience in production, but with a demonstrated artistic ability, such as a director or an artist.

The candidate Producer must demonstrate, at the time of submission of his project, his proficiency in English, both oral and written. The Organizers reserve the right to decline a Producer if his proficiency in English is not sufficient to present his project.

The Booster is exclusively dedicated to projects for stereoscopic-3D (S-3D) immersive contents.
Three categories of immersive S-3D contents are of primary interest:

  • contents that are intended for theatrical release;
  • contents that are intended for XR devices/platforms/experiences;
  • contents that are intended for immersive experiences/installations.

All contents must also have significant international sales potential.
Gaming experiences are not eligible to The Booster.
