#1079: New Tribeca Immersive Curator Ana Brzezińska’s Journey into VR & Virtual Event Production with Kaleidoscope VR

Ana-Brzezinska

On January 10th, Ana Brzezińska was announced to be the new Immersive Curator of the Tribeca Film Festival, and I had a chance to speak to her before this announcement to do a retrospective of her time that she spent as Kaleidoscope VR’s Head of Studio, Producer, and Curator of 16-19 virtual events, many of them during the pandemic. Today the 21 XR projects selected for the Tribeca Film Festival 2022 program have been announced, but I will be following up with Ana later as more information is announced on their virtual and hybrid festival plans as well as to do a deep dive into their program.

This conversation documents Brzezińska’s journey into VR, and the work that she did with Kaleidoscope VR working in collaboration with the Museum of Other Realities. But also a reflection of what she’s finding interesting at this moment in time regarding the future of immersive storytelling, the bridging of the digital and the physical, as well as other cultural and artistic trends that she’s tracking.
