VRTO (Virtual Reality, Toronto) presents FIVARS (Festival of International Virtual and Augmented Reality Stories), a festival started in 2015 that challenges the status quo (before many have even learned what “VR” stands for) of storytelling approaches within “immersive media.”
At a show like FIVARS, audiences may wear a head mounted display (“HMD”) or enter installations or environments that create a transportive experience like a multi speaker audio chamber or projection mapped architecture.
This year’s FIVARS selections include pieces from US, Spain, Switzerland, China, Canada and more. With over two dozens experiences, FIVARS continues to lead the charge for a new form of narrative content.
FIVARS takes place in Toronto Ontario, September 16th through the 18th, 2016.
