`Virtual Reality Cinema` at Carlow Arts Festival 2019

I was volunteering at Carlow Arts Festival this year! And I’m delighted that I could assisting at a such fantastic project as `Virtual Reality Cinema` at Carlow Arts Festival 2019 weekend.

It was a very interesting experience.

The VR Cinema featured a series of VR films from animation to empathy-building documentaries with content for all the family shown on Oculus Go headsets.

Carlow Arts Festival 2019 has teamed up with Camille Donegan of Virtual Reality Ireland, to curate a line-up of Virtual Reality films featuring the best in homegrown and international talent.

The VR Cinema at Carlow Arts Festival was runs Saturday, 8 June – Sunday, 9 June – from 1-9pm.

Daytime program for all the family – 30 min slots from 1pm – 4pm; Invasion (7 mins), My Africa (9 mins), Spacewalker (5 mins)
Duration: 21 mins. Evening program for all the family – 30 min slots from 1pm – 4pm; Sanctuaries of Silence (7 mins), 4 Feet: Blind Date (18 mins). Duration: 25 mins.

All films were brilliant, especially My Africa and Specewalker. You could feel like you travel from Africa to Space and back home again. And you could feel like to be transported into the shoes of others and get to experience life from their perspective.
