A shy girl’s glamorous 18th birthday party is nothing more than the latest of a father’s lies behind his VR mask.

"Happy Birthday" is the first transmedia project made in RAI Cinema which started from a screenwriting contest promoted by Onemore Pictures. The project is composed of a short-film (available on Raiplay), a VR experience (available on RAI Cinema Channel VR) and an IG social story. The universe of "Happy Birthday" has expanded across different media, this is why its essence is transmedia. The project has been officially presented at the 76th Venice Biennale Film Festival. "Happy Birthday" is a highly innovative project, combining cinema with social themes and social networks with VR.
