Go inside art at iCinema’s 360-degree 3D cinematic theatre at UNSW from 8–18 June.
Two interactive experimental films will have their world premiere at the Festival: Deluge, dealing with the devastating cyclone Yasi (QLD 2011), and Nebula, a dream work exploring relationships between the human and natural worlds; created by Dennis Del Favero, celebrated Australian playwright Stephen Sewell and others; the same team that presented the sell-out Scenario for the 2011 Sydney Film Festival.
‘The experimental works Deluge and Nebula explore our increasingly uncertain relationship with the natural world. They do so using a world leading 360-degree 3D cinematic platform that immerses the viewer inside a dynamic visual space that interacts with the viewer, utilising cutting edge developments in computer graphics and artificial intelligence.
'While the central character in Deluge attempts to come to terms with what it means to live in a post-cyclonic world where she has lost everything she loves, the central character in Nebula finds herself caught up in a dream world where nature is at once a threat and yet paradoxically also a refuge.'- Dennis Del Favero
