(MIFF 2017 , Virtual Reality)

Matthew Bate and Gideon Obarzanek team up for Once Upon a Time in the Western Suburbs, putting you in the middle of a street dance battle.

Expanding upon his MIFF 2015 feature Snow Monkey, George Gittoes takes us on a VR tour to Fun Fair Jalalabad, in this world premiere season.

Also world premiering is Ben Smith’s Hunt for the Yidaki, a companion piece to the MIFF Premiere Fund-supported feature Westwind: Djalu’s Legacy.

The final work in this package is contemporary artist Shaun Gladwell’s Orbital Vanitas, a poetic VR experience that perches you inside an enormous human skull orbiting Earth.


VR package durations include approximately 30 minutes of VR experiences, plus introductions and filmmaker Q&As where available.
