Tribeca Film Festival Adding Virtual Reality Award Category
Tribeca Film Festival organizers have revealed that they will accept submissions from virtual reality producers in 2017. It's the first major festival that will allow the category (which includes VR, AR and 360° videos) to compete against mainstream films for awards.
Tribeca featured VR content in 2016, but films were hosted in a special "Virtual Arcade" away from the main festival and were not eligible for prizes. Watch the Tribeca Festival 360° Video here under.
April 2017 in New-York
The Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T, announced the sixteenth edition will be held April 19– April 30, 2017 in New York City.
Awards on the line for virtual reality might encourage filmmakers to explore the limits and create content that does more and more justice to the hardware.
