Enter into a crypt with a friend and explore the digital environs with your friend’s avatar. This multi-user immersive platform combines motion capture with VR headsets, allowing the users to freely move within the physical space while virtually visiting various 3-D interactive environments. Users can see each other’s avatars, and they can interact with each other and 3-D objects using the sense of touch.

Supported by swissnex San Francisco and Pro Helvetia.

Screening Details

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.
