Immersive Cinema Projects at New York Film Festival 2018
The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced their lineup of Virtual Reality and Immersive Cinema projects to be shown at the 56th New York Film Festival, taking place on October 11-14, 2018. Featured projects will include Walt Disney Animation’s first ever VR short Cycles.
Over the course of NYFF’s final weekend, audiences can experience wide-ranging selections of Virtual Reality and Immersive Cinema with several World Premieres including: What Goes Up/Must Come Down, a combination of VR and video installation that takes viewers through the gorgeous Instagram sensation of the Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival and the environmental destruction the lanterns cause once tourists leave; Blue Bird, an immersive animated VR film that feels like a painting come to life; and Hope Amongst the Haze, a journey into the citizen-led effort to rid the once pristine beaches of Mumbai of the trash that overwhelms them. Additionally, Convergence will present the U.S. premiere of Cycles, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ first ever VR short, a brilliant meditation on what makes a house a home.
