The Meteor Station Virtual Reality Film Festival is a premier event for showcasing the latest and greatest in 360-degree VR filmmaking. Hosted on our custom VR platform, the festival offers audiences the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the world of VR cinema.

Featuring a diverse selection of films from around the world, the festival includes categories such as Best VR Short, Best Full-Length VR Feature, Best Music Video, Best Experience, and Best Animation. With a focus on pushing the boundaries of storytelling and innovation, the festival is a must-see event for VR enthusiasts and film lovers alike.

In addition to the film screenings, the festival also includes panels and workshops featuring industry leaders and experts, as well as networking opportunities for filmmakers, producers, and studios.

We will also be hosting the festival at an in-person venue in Durham, North Carolina called Augmentality. This is a Virtual Reality studio, which has the distinct advantage of having ready-to-go headsets for viewing as well as space for in-person events. This allows for all interested viewers to fully engage with each film, and feel as though they are a part of the story. With a focus on diversity and inclusion, we are committed to providing a platform for a wide range of voices and perspectives, from established filmmakers to emerging talent.

Our festival includes a variety of events that will engage and inspire our audience. In addition to screenings of some of the most innovative and exciting VR films being made today, we will also be hosting panel discussions with industry experts, Q&A sessions with filmmakers, and networking opportunities for attendees. We are also planning to include workshops and masterclasses with leading figures in the virtual reality filmmaking community, providing our audience with a chance to learn and grow as they explore the possibilities of VR storytelling.

At our festival, you can expect to experience cutting-edge virtual reality films that will transport you to new worlds, challenge your perceptions, and immerse you in unforgettable stories. We can't wait to share this exciting journey with you!

Whether you're a seasoned VR veteran or new to the world of virtual reality, the Meteor Station Virtual Reality Film Festival is the perfect opportunity to experience the latest and greatest in 360-degree filmmaking. Join us for an unforgettable journey into the future of cinema.
