It’s a moment in history: Vancouver is getting its very own virtual reality film festival and you can bring a friend along for the ride. Inspired by Amsterdam’s pop-up VR cinema, Vancouver Virtual Reality Film Festival is a two day event that will set up shop in the heart of Vancouver at CBC Studio (700 Hamilton Street, Vancouver, BC.)
YVRFF has kindly sponsored the Vancouver VR Community’s official web presence launch with a pair of gala tickets for one lucky member!
What you can win
- A pair of tickets for you and your friend for YVRFF opening gala night (Friday, April 28th at 7PM)
Note: This gala event requires a chic dress code (not black tie tier), as well as your own mobile device. Scroll down to the bottom of YVRFF FAQs for specifics.
Bring your best friend, your significant other, a new friend, your work colleague (you know, the one you constantly talk about VR to at lunch), or whoever of your choosing! Events are always better with a pal.
