Last Sunday, the Canadian Film Centre ran a special virtual reality exhibit for their annual fundraising barbecue. With thanks to AMD and HTC, they showcased WEVR’s theBlue: Encounter along with other demonstrations by Crytek and Kite & Lightning.
Jad Boniface is the Director of HTC’s Developer Relations, and Ana Serrano is the Chief Digital Officer for the Canadian Film Centre. Don’t let the word “film” fool you; they are heavily interested in virtual reality as well!
Obviously, the event was a huge hit and attracted much of Canada’s cinema royalty. It helps that Toronto is home of the currently running Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF)!
HTC and Canadian Filme Centre will both be speaking at Immersed 2015! More news to share soon.
