Zero Point


Institute History

  • 2015 Sundance Film Festival


Academy Award-nominated documentarian Danfung Dennis returns to the Sundance Film Festival (his film Hell and Back played at the 2011 Festival) with the first documentary film shot for virtual reality. Zero Point follows the pioneers of virtual reality, the researchers and developers who are creating this new digital dimension. From combat training simulations at the Department of Defense to research labs at Stanford, from indie game developers to hackers, this immersive game experience brings viewers up to date on an exciting new medium. —S.F.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
