Welcome to the NFFTYX Gallery, NFFTY’s first foray into immersive and 360º storytelling. We have curated a program that features some of the best examples of 360º viewing, making and thinking in the hopes of inspiring you, and maybe even your friends and family members, to jump in and get started making your own. 

You will have 30 minutes to experience one of the following programs:

•         a playlist from the NFFTYX Official Selection of 360º videos

•         a Special Selection of groundbreaking immersive storytelling

•         the virtual art of Scott Bennett

•         a VR painting demo & the NFFTYX Exquisite Corpse project

As you experience these 360º worlds, keep in mind that the technology, the language and storytelling of 360º media making are all in early stages of development. Here are just a few of the challenges: the “frame” is everywhere; directing action is now complicated by multiple cameras shooting simultaneously to capture the 360º environment; editing in 360º without a headset is a bit like driving blind. It’s a cumbersome process for which some of the tools of traditional filmmaking apply and some don’t. What’s exciting is that, like the early days of making movies, it’s a time of experimentation and discovery.

If you experience any of these symptoms, stop viewing immediately and advise the attendant. If you are susceptible to motion sickness, please advise the attendant before participating.
