TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL UNVEILS 2018 TRIBECA IMMERSIVE PROGRAM

VIRTUAL ARCADE LINEUP INCLUDES 21 WORLD PREMIERE VR, AR EXPERIENCES AND 5 PROJECTS SELECTED FOR STORYSCAPES COMPETITION

Festival Introduces Tribeca Cinema360 Featuring Four Curated Screening Programs of 360 Mobile Content in a VR Theater

NEW YORK, NY- March 7, 2018- The Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T, has been the premier curator of cutting-edge interactive storytelling for more than a decade. The 2018 Tribeca Immersive program showcases works by artists who are pushing boundaries, using technology to tell stories and create new experiences. The Virtual Arcade lineup, presented by AT&T, includes 21 world premiere VR/AR exhibits as well as five Storyscapes experiences in competition. The program takes place at the Tribeca Festival Hub from April 20-28. A new addition to Tribeca Immersive is Tribeca Cinema360, a VR theater featuring four curated screening programs of 360 mobile content, running April 21-28. The 17th annual Tribeca Film Festival takes place April 18-29, 2018.

As one of the first festivals to champion VR as a dynamic form of storytelling, this years offerings include 33 virtual reality (VR) innovative exhibitions and experiences from top creators such as Jeremy Bailenson, Chris Milk, Eliza McNitt, Eugene YK Chung, Gabo Arora, and Saschka Unseld, and emerging artists Asad J. Malik, Gabriela Arp, and Lucas Rizzotto. Other acclaimed creators include: Angel Manuel Soto, Lindsay Branham, and Navid Khonsari. Established directors, actors, and musicians with projects this year include: directors Terrence Malick (Together), Laurie Anderson (Chalkroom); actors Rosario Dawson (BattleScar), Lupita Nyongo (My Africa), Alicia Vikander (Ardens Wake: Tides Fall); and GRAMMY award winning band OK Go (Untitled OK Go & WITHIN Project).

Several Immersive projects featured in the program tackle timely cultural issues, including racism (1,000 Cut Journey), climate change (This is Climate Change), immigration and xenophobia (Terminal 3), nuclear war (The Day The World Changed) and HIV/AIDS (Queerskins: a love story). In addition, the lineup includes programming that allows visitors to become active participants in astonishing experiences, such as swimming with sharks (Into the Now), caring for a baby elephant (My Africa), being caught in the bombing raid of a town square (Hero), and participating in a groundbreaking collaboration of AR and Immersive Theater from creators Graham Sack, Sensorium Works and NY Theater Workshop (objects in mirror AR closer than they appear).

Tribeca Cinema360 spotlights four immersive screening programs: VR for Good Creators Lab, This is Climate Change, horror themed Its Right Behind You, and the breathtaking experimental visions of Horizons.

We are at a cultural crossroads. In times of crisis and contemplation, artists have always found a way to inspire and challenge, said Loren Hammonds, Programmer, Film & Immersive. The creators that weve invited to take part in this years Tribeca Immersive are no different. They are using technology and storytelling to tackle subjects such as the dangers of nuclear weapons, racial and religious discrimination, and the real face of climate change. VR is a medium of transportation, and these pieces will do just that for our audience.

Each year, were seeing creators push boundaries and explore new ways to tell stories through VR. As the technology improves, so does the storytelling, and with that we are able to use VR to tackle new issues, experiences and narratives and invite new audiences to experience these projects, said Ingrid Kopp, co-curator of Tribeca Immersive.
