Over a century has passed since the advent of film, allowing filmmakers to continuously hone, craft and form the language of cinema, as well as pass those teachings on to the new crop of filmmakers. Virtual Reality, on the other hand, has only recently been birthed, and with it, a completely new language and approach to storytelling. Learn from the top directors working in this medium, as they take you through their journey of failures and success in virtual reality storytelling.

Join Chris Milk (director, An Evolution of Verse, Sound and Vision, Wilderness Downtown), Rose Troche (director Perspective, The L Word), Saschka Unseld (director The Blue Umbrella, story consultant to Oculus) and Glen Keane (animator, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Duet).
