What happens when a traditional documentary filmmaker and a theatre troupe dip their toes into VR for the first time? How can classic forms of storytelling help make VR both meaningful and entertaining in ways traditional formats have perfected over centuries? Join Academy Award–winning director Roger Ross Williams, theatre director Tara Ahmadinejad (Piehole), and VR creators Sam Gorman (Tender Claws) and Félix Lajeunesse (Felix & Paul Studios) as they examine this convergence of forms that continues to elevate the craft of VR. The panel will be moderated by Yelena Rachitsky
