During the 2017 Cambridge Film Festival we will feature virtual reality (VR) for the first time, showing four extraordinary works over three days; works that demonstrate the current capability of immersive technology in the hands of pioneering creatives. We’ll offer audiences a chance to experience a range of boundary-pushing virtual experiences.
How the LIMINA Immersive VR Experience Sessions work:
Saturday 21st - Monday 23rd
In order to create a sense of an audience for what remains an individual experience, we are setting up five Oculus Rift systems our 'screening room', the Timmy Hele room at Emmanuel College. Each day will have its own dedicated VR experience. That VR piece will be ticketed, and screened hourly – offering you a chance to experience this emerging medium and then share your thoughts afterwards, traditional style in Picturehouse Bar. The programme includes a range of challenging works that stretch the creative boundaries of this emerging medium. Restricted to 18 plus only. Please note that Monday’s piece, Second Date, includes particularly adult content.

All sessions bookable in advance. Audience must arrive promptly at session time to allow for briefing. No latecomers will be admitted. An experienced VR host will guide the audience through the experience.
