Head Space - (7-12 June - To book please come to the venue on the day of the screening) 

The two experiences showing in Portal as part of Head Space are meditative, psychedelic and other worldly.  Both have been chosen as an antidote to the busy festival schedule and intensity of some of the hard hitting documentary stories can be seen and experienced in the Film and Alternate Realities programme.
 
Take a spiritual pilgrimage to see the Dalai Lama and laugh with him. Or step inside the machine and journey though a procedurally created environment that pulses with psychedelic energy.
 
 
Format created in consultation with Limina Immersive.

-----------

Fantasynth is an audio-reactive experience designed for Virtual Reality. Glide through a procedurally populated environment that comes alight with the music. 

Duration: 7 mins

Thu 7 - Tue 12 June
