2017, 2018, 2019, 2020: Encounters Film Festival curation, VR cinema and VR headset click ‘n’ collect service


Limina have been working with Encounters Festival for four years, supporting the UK’s leading short film festival through both VR curation and full delivery of a 5-day VR cinema for the public. The goal of the VR strand of the festival has always been to both introduce immersive arts to the public and foster a creative community of makers around the field of VR film.

We have worked closely with leading VR/AR developers Zubr, partnering to make a VR sync app for audiences, welcoming them into a soothing environment with maximum attention to duty of care. 

In 2020, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we adjusted the format into a VR headset ‘click ‘n’ collect’ service. The preloaded headsets featured an award-winning programme of virtual reality film content for audiences to experience at home.  

“Working with Limina has always been easy, insightful and mutually beneficial. They are a delight to work with” – Rich Warren, Director, Encounters Film Festival.
