The Booster is designed to help independent producers that have projects for innovative 3D contents to give an impulse to these projects. It can help these producers to find financing and to reach their market and audience. Contents can be films, XR, 360°, etc., all with a 3D flavor.

The Booster is limited to a small number of participants to ensure personal coaching and strong interaction within the group of participants and coaches.
