 Wednesday, May 15, 2019 


A new virtual reality festival will take place later this year in Western Australia as part of the Revelation Perth International Film Festival.


Titled XR:WA, the festival will present public and industry events that explore virtual and augmented reality, artificial intelligence, computer animations and other forms of screen-based and immersive media.


Culture and the Arts Minister David Templeman said,”XR:WA will showcase the work of Western Australia’s virtual reality pioneers, while giving audiences a chance to experience immersive technologies firsthand.


“This new festival is a catalyst for social, cultural and economic growth through exciting tourism and job opportunities.”


XR:WA will provide an opportunity for participants to witness the latest innovative technologies, hear from the makers, and have their very own immersive experience such as through a virtual reality headset.


XR:WA will take place from July 6 to 14, 2019 at venues across Perth and Fremantle.


The industry component of the festival program will attract a broad range of local and international delegates to explore new ideas and experience local content from Western Australia’s growing immersive and interactive media sector.
