Push Virtual Reality Cinema

In a first for Push Festival, we host a virtual reality programme exploring different facets of VR’s artistic potential; from storytelling to presence and emotion.

The screenings are presented in Limina’s unique VR Theatre Space; a relaxed, welcoming and calm environment designed for collectively experiencing VR in the best setting possible so you can discover the layers of meaning behind each virtual experience.

Films include:

Sanctuaries of Silence
Silence just might be on the verge of extinction and acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton believes that even the most remote corners of the globe are impacted by noise pollution. In Sanctuaries of Silence, join Hempton on an immersive listening journey into Olympic National Park, one of the quietest places in North America.

Imagine being as tiny as a mouse, surrounded by an enchanting forest. Listen and be guided by the rustling sounds. Look up and down, left and right and find the animals who are living beneath the trees. Some are sniffing, some are croaking and some are even high above you. Discover it for yourself.

Celestial Motion
Inspired by solar science and spectacular images of the Sun, Celestial Motion explores humans’ relationship to the sun through a cosmic meld of contemporary dance and motion-capture technology.

The 500
The 500 is the story of one man who is dedicated to saving one of the world’s most endangered species – the Ethiopian wolf. The experience was created by Bristol’s natural history VR innovators, Biome Productions. With less than 500 individuals, the Ethiopian wolf is on the brink of extinction, and for Alo Hussein, these wolves are family.
