How To Access goEast Festival's Events On VRrOOm
May 6, 2020
For its third edition, goEast partners with VRrOOm to give you access to its complete lineup of 6DoF interactive VR experiences and 360 films!

 

As a competition of experimental 360° and interactive Virtual Reality projects, the Open Frame Award is not being set back by curfews or travel warnings. Instead, the competition itself dives deep into the future of virtual realities. To make it possible, goEast partnered with the social XR cultural hub VRrOOm – a broadcast platform dedicated to arts, entertainment, and cultural events.

 

Virtual venues, a 360° theatre, unique virtual theatrical performances, nominees pitchings, and the Open Frame Award Ceremony will be hosted by the VRrOOm world on the free social XR platform VRChat. For the best experience, a VR headset linked to a PC or a standalone 6DoF VR headset are recommended, but the event is also accessible by most users simply via PC, like any videogame.

 

Access the festival's interactive social experiences and events in 6DoF

via PC, laptops (excluding Mac), all types of PC VR headsets, and Quest*:

Overcoming time constraints to bring the festival online, goEast and VRrOOm were able to achieve a remarkable result, making the goEast's 2020 edition become the world's very first event to offer access to 360° VR films to all, and interactive experiences to pre-registered guests. Thanks to this innovative collaboration with VRrOOm, goEast becomes the world's first film festival allowing audiences to enjoy the complete interactive VR experiences' lineup beyond just the 360 films.

 

Starting today, VR devices owners can register online to access the complete 6DoF VR lineup from May 6 to May 11!

APORIA. THE CITY IS THE CITY (INTERACTIVE VR EXPERIENCE)

In Aporia, the participant learns what it feels like to be in two places at the same time. Two cities in which the inhabitants live in parallel worlds. Each place is doubled and evolving – often in different directions. Multifaceted structures that expand all the way to the peripheral zones permit a glimpse into the communities and rituals of those living there. The fulfillment of a utopian vision, in which cities constantly grow, forming ever-new connections as they spread out. An open spatial experience for the audience.
