Lovaganza and the Lovaganza Foundation

Lovaganza details the news as it comes in regard to the 2020 Lovaganza festival. On the website, the copyright stretches back to 2012, which surely indicates planning prior even that year. Originally, Lovaganza was set to take place in 2015, but technology was discovered that necessitated a further unveiling. As of right now, 2020 is the release date of Lovaganza. In 2018, the Lovaganza Foundation will become official. Next year, in 2017, Lovaganza plans to send a traveling convoy around the world showcasing its new IMMERSCOPE technology. This is a 3D innovation which doesn’t require 3D glasses. The technology behind it utilizes a 180-degree screen. Think of it like being in a theatrical audience at a live broadway performance; except with all the magic of cinema. Think CINERAMA, but with three dimensions bridging the gap between the incredibly vast picture.

Now think of the 20th century’s World’s Fairs on Facebook. These events had interactive displays and events, including presentations. The same will happen at Lovaganza in 2020. There will be live entertainment, events, and presentations. There will be interactive technological events too, and additionally there will be exhibitions. Finally, IMMERSCOPE 3D will act as a centerpiece to the whole festival. For IMMERSCOPE, nine films have been commissioned, three of which have already had principal work done on them. These films will be unveiled sequentially between now and 2020, and they will also be featured on the traveling Lovaganza show.

The primary themes of Lovaganza are bohemian adventure and cultural celebration. Exploration of cultures and the implications of a bohemian lifestyle are the prime concerns of Lovaganza. They want to spread a message of peace and artistic engagement to the world. Like the caravan Lovaganza will comprise in 2017, films will also feature a caravan of sorts traveling across the world.

It will be interesting to see how the final event turns out. When it is fully unveiled, it will take four full months to complete. It will be hosted in eight locations strategically located across the globe. Those locations will be in America, Oceania, Asia, Africa, Europe, and The Middle East. The idea is to get as many people as possible to the events. A third of a year in eight locations comes to approximately 32 months exposure, or 2 years and 8 months. Of course it won’t be possible for everyone to see everything at this exceptional event, but Lovaganza is going to affect as many as it can.
