The annual Raindance Film Festival approaches London once more. This year’s show will feature nearly 30 VR experiences.
As per usual, Raindance 2019’s immersive offerings include a mix of gaming, world premiere VR experiences and a chance to see some of the pieces first shown at festivals like Tribecca and Sundance. The selection includes both full VR pieces and 360 videos.
In terms of premieres, we’re looking forward to seeing Heart of Darkness, the latest animated experience from Sutu. There’s also Rise of Animals, a new experience with Sir David Attenborough. The experience will give us a virtual look at three prehistoric animals.
Elsewhere, we’ll get a first look at Anonymous, the VR film debut from Virtual Umbrella’s Samantha Kingston.
As for returning experiences, Gloomy Eyes, an animated VR story starring Colin Farrell, will be on display. Tupac Martir’s Cosmos Within Us will be at the show too.
Meanwhile, in the gaming section, Raindance will showcase the likes of No Man’s Sky Beyond and Maze Theory’s soon-too-release Doctor Who: The Edge of Time. Fast Travel Games’ The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets will also be on display. We’ll also see the international premiere of The Infinite Hotel, a promising new game from Italic Pig.
The best experiences are also being gathered for the Raindance Awards.
Raindance 2019 runs from September 25 to October 6. If you’re looking for tickets you can find them here.
