Virtual Reality Pavilion at NCFF
Last year, to rave reviews, we launched a VR Festival within the Film Festival. People traveled across the state to see the very best in VR. This year we’ve raised the bar and are bringing VR to all of Nevada County (well, most of it!).
We’ve partnered with Exit Reality VR to have their VR trucks stopping throughout Nevada County before and during the festival for individuals to experience VR for the first time. We are also excited to have Exit Reality VR join us at the VR Pavilion at Festival HQ, Miners Foundry to showcase the best in cinematic, story driven VR.
The VR Pavilion features VR experiences from the world’s top VR creators on Facebook/Oculus VR and HTC Vive, plus live Tilt Brush demonstrations on the HTC Vive by visual artists, workshops and panel discussions, DJs and a common area for creatives to meet up, hang out, and talk about their next project!
We are honored to present a special student workshop with leading VR artist Wesley Allsbrook, one of the creators behind Dear Angelica. From Emmy Award winning Oculus Story Studio comes Dear Angelica, a journey through the magical and dreamlike ways we remember our loved ones. Entirely painted by hand inside of VR, Dear Angelica plays out in a series of memories that unfold around you. An immersive, illustrative short story starring Geena Davis and Mae Whitman.
