Nine Years On: 2019
Every year as a creative team, we challenge ourselves to bring new ideas to the fore. A festival is a place for reinvigoration. Our programming team has expanded, and we are curating programmes that are inviting audiences to dive into new ideas, cultures and places. It’s important to us that there are a vast range of cultures and societies represented through our public programme and curation is at the heart of what we do. Key speakers include Dionne Farell, BBC Film, StudioCanal, Film4, Bird’s Eye View, Nowness, Tracy Granger, Richard Billingham, Dazed, BFI, Hijack, Guardian, Simon Chinn (Lightbox), ILM, Maker Projects, Sky VR, Babycow and many more. The VR Soiree was launched as a large-scale event for professionals working in XR.
