Free Event

Since its recent resurging popularity, virtual reality (VR) has often been seen as a wow factor rather than a narrative medium. However, does the medium have more to offer besides an exciting immersive experience? Will VR bring in a new perspective of storytelling? If yes, how can we achieve it? In the forum "Virtual Reality for Narrative Experience", interdisciplinary artist Kaho Albert Yu and VR curator of Kaohsiung Film Festival Grace Lee will share their current projects in the exploration of virtual reality as a narrative form.

In Cantonese and Mandarin with simplified Mandarin interpretation for Cantonese content.
