International VIFF Immersed Competition Jury
- What are the dates of the VIFF IMMERSED Exhibition?
Content will be available for viewing from September 27 through October 6.
- Is the exhibition free of charge?
Yes. There is no charge for this year’s all-virtual exhibition. Both the applications used to access the festival and the content are free.
- What is the best platform on which to view the content?
The content is created for viewing and in some cases interacting within a Virtual reality Head Mounted Display. Content that allows freedom of movement within a 3D virtual reality otherwise known as 6DoF is best viewed within and Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, or certified Windows Mixed Reality Headset and the services listed above for those headsets.
- If I don't have a Rift or Vive headset how will I view 6DoF content?
Only a few films of this year’s finalist entries are 6DOF. Trailers or “filmed” experiences of that content will be available on other non-6DoF platforms.
- I don’t have a VR headset. Can I still view the content?
Yes. This is what is special about VIFF Immersed. Content not requiring a headset will be available via the VIFF Immersed YouTube 360 Channel, and apps from VeeR and Littlstar for computers, mobile phones and tablets.
- Can I see stereoscopic/3D VIFF Content on my mobile phone?
Yes, via Littlstar app and VIFF YouTube 360 Channel but you will need a Google cardboard, Daydream or other VR device with lenses in which you can insert your phone.
- When are the competition winners announced?
The juried award winners in animation, documentary and cinematic VR will be announced on October 6, 2020. The VeeR Audience Award winner will be announced following the festival.
- What if I need technical support?
Support is different for each platform. Please contact your platform or VR service provider for technical support. To report a problem, click here.
