Combining the highest-quality 3D technology with stylish appearance for one of the world’s most prestigious film festivals of the year, XPAND 3D glasses were used for a technical 3D presentation at the 18th Sarajevo Film Festival, which took place June 6-14.
Founded in 1995 with the intention of providing a sense of normalcy to the residents of the war-torn city in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Sarajevo Film Festival has grown into one of the biggest film festivals in the world, drawing the most successful regional artists and international stars alike. This year’s festival drew approximately 100,000 attendees and featured 210 films from 57 countries. Nine feature films from Bosnia, Serbia, Macedonia, Turkey, Austria and Romania were entered in competition for the festival’s Heart of Sarajevo award.
The festival included a technical presentation, hosted by XPAND partner dcinex at the Meeting Point Cinema in Sarajevo, which discussed the present state and future of 3D technology. For the event, XPAND supplied 200 of its Infinity active 3D glasses.
The Infinity 3D glasses provide up to 38% transparency and a 3000:1 contrast ratio. The glasses’ lightweight ergonomic designs ensure long-wearing comfort, and their wide 3D viewing angle provides an optimal 3D image across the entire cinema. All new XPAND cinema systems and glasses fully support HFR (High Frame Rate) double and single flash at 96fps, 120fps, 144fps, 192fps, 240fps and even variable fps.
XPAND 3D is also the official partner of the Cannes Film Festival and the Venice Film Festival, and is used for the biggest 3D premieres around the world.
“The enduring success of the Sarajevo Film Festival and its development into one of the world’s most prestigious festivals is a source of tremendous joy for everyone here at XPAND 3D,” said Maria Costeira, CEO of XPAND 3D. “We are of course honored to provide our 3D cinema glasses for the event and continue to spread the word that XPAND 3D offers the best 3D experience, whether it’s at the Sarajevo Film Festival or in your home!”
