Alice, The Virtual Reality Play is a mind-blowing VR experience. Put on a visor and gradually discover it’s you yourself who is Alice in Wonderland. Alice, The Virtual Reality Play (2017) by the French DVgroup can be experienced from 22 December 2019 through 4 January 2020 at Eye Filmmuseum.
Alice, The Virtual Reality Play includes surrealist creatures straight out of Lewis Carroll’s celebrated tale, such as the White Rabbit, Humpty Dumpty and an enormous caterpillar, who all appear large as life and interact with you. Every day two British actors, Robin Berry and Josh Jefferies, will perform especially for you in this virtual play. Attendance is limited to one person every half hour. An interview with one of the interactive actors is part of the opening programme.
Alice, The Virtual Reality Play was previously featured at the Film Festival of Venice, Centre Phi – Montreal, Future of Storytelling — New York, Geneva International Film Festival Tous Ecrans and Dubai International Film Festival.

Virtual Reality productions are an increasingly important element of the contemporary film experience. Eye has created a new programme, Xtended, to focus on VR. In Xtended, you’re not confronted with the flat surface of a film screen. You move around virtually in 3D through a designed space that surrounds and immerses you on all sides.
Film programme Through the Looking Glass
The Alice in Wonderland theme is explored from various angles in Eye’s film theatres. The film programme Through the Looking Glass includes both early and recent Alice film adaptations as well as work by filmmakers who were inspired by the idea of displacement, time paradoxes, and encounters with fantastic creatures.
