Conceived by a team with well over a decade of experience producing real world film festivals, CYBERIA will gather it’s audience from around the world to a virtual screening room on the AltspaceVR platform. We will present a curated schedule of short films from an assortment of genres, with a new film screening every quarter-hour.
Conversations will be muted during the screenings, but the audience is encouraged to converse with one another between films, just as they would in a brick-and-mortar theater. Anyone in the world can join. AltspaceVR is a cross-platform social VR app with compatible Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Samsung Gear VR, or in 2D mode on Mac and PC.
In the future, we also plan to offer moderated Q&A sessions with filmmakers, audience participation events in the vein of RiffTrax, and other innovative content as it becomes available.
