The CannesXR Showcase features over 50 different immersive narrative experiences in the Museum of Other Realities from June 24 to July 3rd, with showcases featuring 12 experiences from Tribeca Film Festival, 12 360 video curated by VeeR, 6 experiences for the Positron chair, and over 20 projects in development curated by Kaleidoscope VR. Usually these types of narrative experiences are shown at film festivals, but with the global pandemic, then there’s an opportunity to actually see some of the content from the film festival circuit that’s normally not widely available.
I had a chance to see all of the content, and then talk with VR critic Pola Weiß, who writes the VRStories.blog focusing on the evolution of immersive narrative. We talk about all 12 of the 6DoF experiences form Tribeca, and then our highlights from the rest of the showcases. I’d recommend checking out as much as you can before it ends on Friday, July 3rd, and then have a listen to this episode where we unpack our takeaways from CannesXR.

Here’s a thread with more context information about the festival, where to download the content, and some of the logistical feedback on the social dynamics and experience of using the MOR.
