As the tools of virtual reality have moved outside of the realm of science fiction and into our homes, the last few years have seen the rise of an entirely new visual medium. With creators continuing to work to define their role in the new media landscape, this panel will bring together project creators and virtual reality experts to examine what the future of VR means for the ways we interact with visual entertainment and the arts.

The Gary Winick Foundation
GARY WINICK (1961-2011)
Director/producer Gary Winick premiered multiple films at HIFF, winning the Audience Award in 1999 for his drama THE TIC CODE. Throughout the early 2000s, Winick’s brainchild InDigEnd was a high-profile production company that championed low-cost, independent and digital moviemaking. A longtime supporter of the Festival, Gary considered the Hamptons his second home. The Gary Winick Memorial Fund was established to help young filmmakers hone their craft and further the art of cinema.
