Got a hankering to explore what’s going on in the local, national and international world of VR, AR, AI and games?

Well for 2019 and beyond we’re proud to announce WA’s own major conference and public expo devoted to these new forms of screen-based technology and content production.

Running parallel with our film program, XR:WA bring six days of specialised programs for the film lovers, screen artists, families, industry, academia and anyone interested in these new and exciting forms.

Happening at venues across Perth, Fremantle and many places in between, the program is packed with VR and immersive experiences, playable games, live team VR gameplay, workshops, talks, screenings, 360’ films and dozens of other events and activities.

Register as a conference delegate for the whole experience or just buy individual tickets for each experience, XR:WA is a must for all sectors of the screen industry and for those wanting to explore new work, new ideas and new approaches.

Highlights include

Rone
Official Selection: SXSW, Cannes

A distinctive portrait of the world-famous street artist. The 360' film and interactive VR art gallery take the viewer inside Rone’s world where you wander through and explore Rone’s works. At the end of the gallery you find a large orb where the 360’ video documentary begins.

Installation: On Exactitude in Science
On Exactitude in Science is a two-screen video installation, featuring a synchronized presentation of Godfrey Reggio's Koyaanisqatsi (1982) & Alan Butler's Koyaanisgtav (2017). Using Koyaanisqatsi as a screenplay itself, Butler has stunningly transposed this work into a new form using the virtual worlds within the Grand Theft Auto video game series. Always surprising and an impressive work by anyone’s standards.
Originally Commissioned by IMMA – Irish Museum of Modern Art, 2017.
