360º GALLERY Join us in the 360º shorts gallery to pull on a headset and be transported onto the streets of New York City for the Women’s March, under a living room table to watch a family confront addiction, and into the body of an insect trapped inside a glass jar. Experience how young makers are utilizing the 360º form to tell fiction, non-fiction and experimental stories that hold multiple perspectives at once, literally co-exist on opposite sides of the screens, and immerse us in future worlds. After your laidback viewing experience, get ready to create a virtual world you can walk around in. Seattle VR artist Scott Bennett will be in the gallery to exhibit his virtual art work and demo virtual painting programs. Be sure to add your mark to the NFFTYX Exquisite Corpse project. 10
