Technology is transforming storytelling like never before - immersive experiences are booming in popularity and have allowed the world to connect to arts throughout the ongoing pandemic. As creativity precedes innovation, it’s the artists and creatives who are leading the conversation in designing tomorrow’s world.

Join the expert mentors from the upcoming Off-Piste Lab 2021 for an afternoon of knowledge sharing, creativity and inspiration as they present the current state of play of the VR storytelling landscape.

This event is also an opportunity to learn more about Off-Piste VR Storytelling Lab 2021 which will be taking place in a hybrid form for the first time this year, and hear from some of the previous participants about their experiences on the lab.

Off-Piste is an initiative created by CEFIMA and The Norwegian Film School.
