For the first time ever, this year's Tribeca Immersive programming will feature a thematically curated selection of experiences that address our relationship with nature, society and with ourselves through digital art and cutting edge technology. The stories blend together into a coherent whole, offering Festival attendees a breathtaking interactive journey.
Three unique categories of immersive selections (Main Competition, New Voices and Best of Season) will be part of Tribeca Immersive this year, running from June 10-19. Main Competition projects are eligible for the juried Storyscapes Award, which honors artists who bridge the gap between technology and storytelling. In addition, Tribeca Festival is introducing the New Voices award for Immersive, which will be awarded to a first- or second- time XR creator that brings new perspectives and artistic languages to immersive storytelling.
For the at-home audience with access to VR headsets, Immersive experiences can be accessed through a virtual Exhibition via the Museum of Other Realities, a digital extension of the in-person gallery experience and a custom-designed Tribeca world reflecting the main themes of this year's line-up.
