How to access MIFF XR

MIFF XR is fully available to those with Oculus and Vive virtual reality (VR) headsets.

You can also access MIFF XR if you don’t own any VR equipment at all, as our XR platform allows those with Mac or PC desktops/laptops to experience the 360-degree films and interact with other festival visitors. And those with Android smartphones can access our augmented reality (AR) experience (via MIFF XR desktop).
