KELLY CAMPELIA

PROGRAM COORDINATOR

"I am continually impressed by how people are discovering and defining immersive storytelling. These artists and their stories prove that it’s all about diving deeper - into the real world, a game world, a dream world or a world we don’t yet know how to label."

KELLY'S PICKS:

MY PEOPLE, OUR STORIES: MARAH
Marah - 18 | Jordan
NFFTYx Official Selection Gallery
"Short and sweet - Marah’s story will make your heart swell with hope and admiration in the midst of a refugee camp." 

AVALOKI
Priyam Parikh - 23 | California
NFFTYx Official Selection Gallery (Rift)
"Avaloki is a beautiful and creative mix of storytelling techniques - it is all at once a movie, a game, a painting, a story within a story, and a dream-like escape."

VIDEO GAME VEHICLE
Sam Wickert - 21, Eric Leigh - 21 |
California
NFFTYx Official Selection Gallery
"I have no idea how they created this but it’s awesome. A mix of game world and real world with experimental camera movements - this experience is as technically impressive as it is entertaining."

HOVERING
79A, Conor Grebel, Shigeto | USA
NFFTYx Empathy Lounge
"This is the type of experience that gets me really excited about what VR brings to the table. I had no idea what I was watching and yet I was totally captivated with the visuals and sounds. Look up the backstory online after!"

AR STORYTELLING INSIGHTS
with Charity Everett
NFFTYx | Saturday 11AM-12:30PM
"I considered myself ‘in the know’ about immersive storytelling until I was introduced to Charity’s work. Charity is pioneering a new world of storytelling and I can’t wait to hear what she has to say about it."
