About SF360




Your home to the greatest 360 videos



360 videos are recordings where a view in every direction is recorded at the same time , allowing viewers to not only watch an experience from any point of view, but also immerse themselves in this experience with a VR headset. After the multi lens camera captures every point of view simultaneously, the footage is then stitched together into one 360 video. For film makers, documentary makers, news crews and live events, we can now capture a full moment in time, changing the possibilities of video content production forever.   




“SF360” is home to 360 videos sent from around the world for SF3. Short films, amazing locations and life’s simplest moments created in 360 so you can experience each moment as if you were there. 




This new medium has specific requirements to give the viewer the best experience. These factors will be taken into account when assessing entries:


  • Resolution: Minimum 3840 x 1920 output (is recommended) but we will accept all resolutions
  • Steadiness: All 360 video camerawork must be as steady as possible
  • Production value: Lighting and sound
  • Locations: Unique 
  • Narrative: Creative camera uses; innovative storytelling, etc

    1.   The film must be shot entirely on a smartphone, tablet or 360 camera.

    2.   Films must be no longer than 6 minutes and 30 seconds including titles and credits. There is however some leeway for exceptional videos.
