The Tribeca Film Festival has been on the forefront of showcasing the up-and-coming virtual reality storytelling artform. Each year they feature a selection of the most interesting virtual reality experiences, ranging from immersive films to interactive projects that can involve elements of theater or physical artwork in addition to what one sees inside the headset.
Interactive theatre is not necessarily what comes to mind when you see a Virtual Reality headset. Yet many artists and filmmakers are more and more utilizing the capabilities of these immersive devices to create a mixed reality experience combining theatre, sets, and a virtual world once the headset goes on. Take a look at the lineup of experiences on view at Tribeca Film Festival’s Virtual Reality Arcade this year.
