Virtual Reality at Festival of Nature 2019!

Come face-to-face with wildlife in virtual reality this weekend!

The Festival will host an exclusive talk from two of the leading lights in VR film-making, as Mitch Turnbull and Emma Hughes from Limina Immersive will kick-off the free talks tent at 11.30am on Sunday 9 June.

Visitors to the Festival of Nature will also be able to see wildlife from a whole new perspective this weekend, as Limina Immersive will be screening a number of thought-provoking and beautiful films in virtual reality.

Anyone interested in watching a show will be able to take the short trip to Limina Immersive’s VR Theatre on the Harbourside, with screenings of Wilderness: Our Very Human Impact and Ocean, Body and Mind available at a discounted rate for festival-goers.

From a Kenyan elephant sanctuary to the Hoh Rain Forest in the northwest United States, via wolves in southern Ethiopia, Wilderness: Our Very Human Impact allows audiences to come face-to-face with incredible animals and environments that we are in grave danger of losing due to human impact.

Ocean, Body and Mind will help you to rediscover your relationship with the sea and take a sensory journey into the breathtakingly beautiful oceans of our planet, to explore what happens to the human body and mind in the deep dark blue.

Limina are offering festival attendees a special discount on VR shows happening over the festival weekend, as well as the following Wednesday and Thursday evenings, to make sure you can escape to nature after the buzz of the festival and ease those post-festival blues.
